The 1995-96 NBA season was the Kings' 47th season in the National Basketball Association, and 11th season in Sacramento.[1] During the offseason, the Kings acquired ?ar?nas Mar?iulionis from the Seattle SuperSonics, and Tyrone Corbin from the Atlanta Hawks. The Kings would play their best basketball winning their first five games of the season. However, things turned ugly as a brawl occurred in a 119-95 road win over the Indiana Pacers on November 10, with a total of 16 players, eight from each team suspended.[2] After a 24-17 start, the Kings struggled losing eleven straight games in February, as they traded Corbin and Walt Williams to the Miami Heat for Billy Owens and Kevin Gamble.

Despite their struggles, the Kings would finally end their nine-year playoff drought by winning 14 of their final 24 games. They would capture the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference with a 39-43 record, fifth in the Pacific Division with Mitch Richmond being selected for the 1996 NBA All-Star Game. In the first round of the playoffs, the Kings faced the top-seeded Seattle SuperSonics. Despite winning Game 2 on the road 90-81, the Kings would lose the series in four games as Richmond sprained his ankle in Game 4, which the Kings lost 101-87 to the Sonics.[3] It was also their only playoff appearance with Richmond on the team. Following the season, Mar?iulionis was traded to the Denver Nuggets.
