Don't sell that Kings apparel just yet - it may come in handy on Saturday night during a Kings rally and player meet-and-greet at Fountains at Roseville.
Kings forward DeMarcus Cousins will be greeting fans at the event, which also features a chance to win an original signed ball from the Kings' heyday (think Chris Webber/Mike Bibby era), according to a Fountains news release.
The event is from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the community stage area of the shopping center. Cousins is scheduled to appear during the last hour.
Gloria Wright, the Fountains' center manager, will interview Cousins about his favorite moments of the season.
The event is just one of the many pieces of a partnership that Fountains has had with the Kings in recent years. Players, the Kings dancers and Slamson have been featured at past events, Wright said in a phone interview.
"They have been an integral part of our First Fridays," she said. "This is sort of capping off this year's contract."
Twenty fans will be chosen during the event to compete for the title of "King for the Day." Basically, the fan most decked out in Kings gear (apparel, costumes, signage) wins.
Those 20 fans chosen also will be eligible to get one of their Kings items autographed by Cousins, and can take a photo with Cousins with their own camera, the release states.
Other Kings prizes will be given out during the event.
