Kings Have 3 Trades In Place for # 8 Pick. Could a Rajon Rondo Trade be one?
To quote the great Jim Ross, 'business is about to pick up.' According to ESPN's Andy Katz, the Sacramento Kings have 3 potential trades in place for the #8 pick in this draft.
Sources said the Kings have two deals that could be done prior to Thursday's 2 p.m. trade deadline to change the draft order and one would be a draft night deal, depending on which players are available when the Kings select.
The three deals would return multiple draft picks and a veteran player to the Kings for the No. 8 pick.
Sources wouldn't reveal the three teams involved in the negotiations yet, but the source said the discussions are more than talk now and the Kings are weighing the offers against the potential four players who the Kings think will be available at No. 8, depending on what occurs in front of them in the lottery.
The Kings have had multiple offers for the No. 8 pick but have settled on these three possible deals.
While the report seems to indicate that the Kings are interested in moving up, most of you will recall that there were multiple sources reporting that a trade between the Celtics and Kings involving Rajon Rondo was awfully close to happening.
If Kevin Love isn't coming to town, a trade with the Kings would seem to make a lot of sense. This is one to keep an eye on.
