With the Kings gluten of small forwards, be prepared to hear a substantial amount of trade rumors arise in the next few months, if not longer (hey – you wanted King news during the lockout, didn’t you!?!) until one of Donte Greene or Omri Casspi is moved.
Today’s scoop de jour comes courtesy of ESPN’s Marc Stein who recently tweeted the potential swap of Omri (Or Omar if you’re not a King fan…) Casspi for Cavs forward J.J. Hickson.
The interesting part of Stein’s tweet however was the word choice, saying the two teams were in advanced talks, something Stein wouldn’t have mentioned if the trade was only in its early stages.
In addition to Stein, local stud Sam Amick is reporting similar details as is Cleveland’s Ohio.com – so a swap (which would need to be completed before 9PM PST tonight) could be hours away. Stay tuned.
