It’s incredibly difficult to tell what the Sacramento Kings are doing currently, or what the long-term plan is. The frontcourt is dealing with a logjam, the wings are incredibly young, and Darren Collison is slated to be the starting point guard.
Rarely do such bad teams approach the luxury-tax line, but that’s where Sacramento is right now. This is far from an ideal situation currently, and so trading pieces on the roster to gain flexibility or upgrade the talent makes plenty of sense.
