This preseason is one for the history books.

The Kings made their way to India for the NBA’s first-ever preseason games as the game looks to grow in the cricket-loving nation populated by over one billion people.

Kings Chairman, CEO and Governor Vivek Ranadivé, made sure the squad arrived in style.

Chartering the plane of the world-renowned rapper, Drake, the guys were plenty comfortable on their way to India!


First stop, Agra!

Before the team reached their final destination in Mumbai, they set some time to see one of the Seven Wonders of the World – the Taj Mahal.

After their initial practice, Buddy Hield, Bogdan Bogdonovic and Dewayne Dedmon, teamed up with NBA Cares to host a clinic for children in Mumbai.
