The Sacramento Kings are expected to be very active at the trade deadline as they have no shortage of interesting trade chips that teams will likely entertain the thought of acquiring. Of all the chips the Kings have to offer, it appears that they’re most eager to deal guards Marcus Thronton and Jimmer Fredette before the deadline rolls around in a few weeks.
Steve Kyler from Basketball Insiders notes that the Kings want to make a deal that packages the guards together, but not many teams are interested in either one individually, let a one as a package. Kyler states the best value in a deal for both Thornton and Fredette is that the Kings could acquire a big salary player in return.
The Kings continue to be active in trade talks. The two most mentioned names are guards Marcus Thornton and Jimmer Fredette. Combined they become an interesting salary cap value that could return a major salary player. The problem is there does not seem to be a whole lot of interest in either player.
Sacramento will no doubt make another deal before the deadline, it just might be a very splashy one. Moving Thornton and Fredette looks good to the Kings on paper but there’s a reason most teams in the NBA are turning that race away and forcing the issue may not help a trade come about.
