Sacramento Kings Interseted In Blazers’ Nicolas Batum


Few names top the wishlists of King fans more than Portland Trailblazers forward Nicolas Batum, so it’ll be welcome news that the Kings have inquired about the soon to be free agent.

Per Jason Jones:

Nothing new trade-wise for Kings. Heard they’ve inquired about availability of Portland SF Nicolas Batum. Not expecting anything yet.

Unfortunately, given Batum’s expected high price tag and the somewhat absurd demands of Portland’s front office for other lesser players, one could reasonably expect little to come of this.

Still, nice to see the Kings putting out an effort.

    I’m salivating. The question is, would you give Tyreke for Batum? I’m hesitant, but I’m sure a lot of fans might.
