NBA Draft 2013: Sacramento Kings in Trade Talks With Suns, Bobcats


The Sacramento Kings appear to be very active today and according to James Ham, are on the verge of ‘shaking’ things up.

Per Ham:

I am hearing strong indications that the Kings are trying to shake things up. It’s going to be a wild afternoon.

In their attempts to shake things up, the Kings are potentially in trade discussions with the Phoenix Suns and Charlotte Bobcats, this according to Pro Basketball Draft:

Kings have spoken to the Suns about moving up to get McLemore. Also, reached out to Charlotte as well.

The Kings select seventh overall tonight and according to a multitude of sources want to move up in the draft to select Ben McLemore. The Bobcats select fourth overall while the Suns pick fifth, a clear indication that the Kings feel McLemore would fall to one of those two teams (or the Pelicans, who select sixth).

McLemore, who many had slated as a top two pick has fallen in many mock drafts due to NBA scouts questioning his work ethic.
