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