Philadelphia 76ers Receive: Buddy Hield, Glenn Robinson III
Sacramento Kings Receive: Danny Green, Shake Milton, Mike Scott, 2021 1st Round Pick
This would be a very well balanced trade between a contending team and a team that quite frankly won’t even sniff the postseason. Buddy Hield is in the first year of a four-year, $94 million contract and given he is having a down year, his trade value isn’t all that great right now.
The Kings have been stuck being a borderline playoff contender for the last few seasons with De’Aaron Fox at the helm. He’s in the midst of a tremendous season but doesn’t have the right pieces around him for Sacramento to thrive. Something has to give.
The 76ers would be sending the Kings fair value for their shooting guard and the two sides could each benefit in this deal. Danny Green is an expiring contract that would help for the remainder of the season while opening up cap space for the offseason. Shake Milton is an intriguing young combo guard who could be a key bench piece.
Philadelphia will need experienced players alongside Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons to help them in their journey to contend for a championship and Buddy Hield’s catch-and-shoot oriented skill-set could certainly help. Glenn Robinson III would be included to offer some wing depth as well.
Let’s take a look at how this NBA trade deadline scenario centered around Buddy Hield would benefit both the Philadelphia 76ers and Sacramento Kings.
