The 2015-16 Sacramento Kings season was the 71st season of the franchise, its 67th season in the National Basketball Association (NBA), and its 31st in Sacramento. It was also their final season playing in the Sleep Train Arena (their home since 1988), as the Kings moved to the new Golden 1 Center in Downtown Sacramento the following season. It was also the final full-season for DeMarcus Cousins played for the Kings' before being traded to the New Orleans Pelicans midway through next season.

Following seven consecutive seasons with fewer than 30 victories, an ignominy previously suffered only by the Vancouver/Memphis Grizzlies franchise between 1995-96 and 2002-03 and by the Kings themselves between 1986-87 and 1993-94, the Kings improved by four wins to finish 33-49. It was the first time since 2004-05 that the Kings were out of the bottom two in the Pacific Division, but the team remained eight wins short of a playoff berth. This season was also the first since 2007-08 where the Kings had won at least 40% of their games and prevented another 50 loss season. Following the season, veteran George Karl was fired as head coach, one game shy of his 2,000th NBA game as head coach, and replaced by Dave Joerger.
