The Sacramento Kings have been serious about trading Marcus Thronton before the deadline arrives and it appears they’ve found a suitor. After hearing that the Kings were in talks with the Brooklyn Nets about a three-player trade earlier int he day, Yahoo! Sports guru Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that the trade talks have reached a serious stage — aka critical mass.

A deal isn’t yet done, but Woj saying that a trade is in the serious stage of talks means that we should expect something major to happen.

Sacramento’s talks with Brooklyn on a deal to acquire guard Jason Terry and forward Reggie Evans for Kings guard Marcus Thornton have progressed to a serious stage, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

It’s still too  early to say the deal will indeed be happening, but it’s starting to sound like it’s only a matter of time. The Kings haven’t had many public suitors for Thornton, and their desire to race him may lead them to taking the best deal that comes along — and this seems to be it.
