It is about that time that the Sacramento Kings begin pushing the right buttons. They have been featured in plenty of NBA trade rumors over the last year, but nothing has been done just yet. He could start if they finally send Buddy Hield away for a return.
The Dallas Mavericks seem like the perfect destination for Hield. This is a franchise that brought Kristaps Porzingis to town to build a winner in the Western Conference.
Dallas has made the postseason in the last two years, but they have both ended the same way, losing the Los Angeles Clippers in the first round. With Luka Doncic locked up long-term, the Mavericks are in a good position to contend for the upcoming years.
This can continue if they make another trade for a perimeter threat. Hield is one of the best that seems to be available. Sacramento has been shopping Hield for over a year now but decided not to move him at the NBA trade deadline.

The Kings lost Bogdan Bogdanovic, and this forced them to move Hield back into the starting lineup. Now, they have Tyrese Haliburton coming off an impressive rookie season who overtook that role in addition to Davion Mitchell being in the mix.
That is easier said than done for an organization like the Kings. Let’s look at what a potential NBA trade scenario between the Sacramento Kings and Dallas Mavericks could look like at some point in the future.
