Somewhat true about the Kings having leadership, but I still don't think it's worth the risk. You bring someone like that and you still potentially cause rifts in the room even after he is gone. Myabe Avery was a bad example, he just runs his dumb mouth and just doesn't know when not to. Aliu is one of those guys that just doesn't get it. He'll stay up until 3am partying the night before a game, he'll go out and get in fights at bars, and then get pissed none of his teammates where there to back him up... He just plain isn't a guy you want around your team. If you look at the history Richards and Carter have, the history Drew Doughty has, you should be able to see how bringing in a guy like Aliu could seriously destroy what the Kings have built.
