Remi Barry, an 18-year-old French national and transfer student from Florida, is taking his battle to play for Del Oro High School to court today, asking a Placer County Superior Court judge to issue a stay against the California Interscholastic Federation so he can finish the 2009-2010 season with the school.
The CIF issued a response to all the criticism it has received in declaring 6-foot-7-inch Florida high school transfer Remi Barry ineligible to play for Del Oro.

Unlike the past few years, the Kings have some depth on their roster and could benefit from making a trade. The biggest trade chips the Kings have seem to be Kenny Thomas (an expiring contract that could offer immediate cap relief for a team), Andres Nocioni (recognized around the league for his gritty play) and Kevin Martin (while there is no rush to deal, he does have significant value on the market). It would still benefit Sacramento to see how Martin fits in when fully healthy, but the need for a big man could trump that plan. Many Kings fans have seen enough and are calling for a Martin deal.
Tonight’s Sacramento Kings game at ARCO Arena should be a treat for viewers for many reasons. Northern Californian rivals face off, two young teams trying to learn their identities continue to show their growth, and a few fresh faces on the court get another opportunity to shine.
