The Sacramento Kings are floating around the bottom of the Western Conference right now. Unfortunately, that’s been the case for them for the better part of the last two decades. It hasn’t been pretty in Sactown as the NBA trade deadline approaches, to say the least.
Things have gotten so stale that recent rumors have stated that the Kings are willing to part ways with De’Aaron Fox and/or Tyrese Haliburton in trades.
Their star backcourt has been the highlight of the season so far, but it’s become evident that change is needed in Sacramento.
Parting ways with one of their stars could mean one of two things. Either they try to find a different young star that pairs well with the one they don’t trade, or they trade one for depth and young assets in hopes of building a competent, all-around team.
