The most rumored player to be moved out of Sacramento this year has been Kevin Martin. Despite the fact Martin has been the only mildly bright spot of the other wise bleak few seasons, he also plays a similar position to rookie teammate Tyreke Evans.
Evans is making a strong bid for Rookie of the Year and many would peg him the future of this Kings team. A title that has been somewhat removed from Martin. But due to constant injuries and questionable leadership capabilities, many thought that Martin was an expendable player.
His incredibly efficient scoring coupled with a ruthless and physical slashing player in Evans makes him potentially more valuable than ever. If the two can learn to play off of each other, the Kings could very well have the highest scoring backcourt in the NBA for a while.
That is to say that Martin is around past the February 18th deadline.
According to a report published on ESPN.com Rumor Central, the Kings are not looking to move Martin. But that doesn't stop me from putting on my GM hat like any NBA fan likes to do and toss out some trade ideas. Here are five ideas that could, or maybe should fly.
