Buddy Hield remains in an awkward position as the start of this season nears. He was as close to getting traded this offseason when a deal unravelled at the last-minute with the Los Angeles Lakers. Now, he remains a member of the Kings after the team has used consecutive lottery picks on a guard.
At one time, Hield was moved to the bench but it was for us to re-enter the starting lineup once Bogdan Bogdanovic left Sacramento. It is unknown with the relationship is like between Hield and Sacramento but with his current situation, it would benefit both sides if a trade can be made.
There isn’t a great amount of trade value around Hield given the size of his contract. However, the Indiana Pacers are a team that could make sense as a potential suitor despite that fact.
