While many expected the Sacramento Kings to remain quiet at the upcoming NBA trade deadline – I thought they might actually make a move, although, it would be a small one – like shipping out Aaron Brooks to a team like Boston, in need of some backcourt depth.
What I, nor anybody else expected, was a big name trade and that’s exactly what happened this afternoon.
Multiple sources have reported that the Sacramento Kings have traded rookie and 5th overall pick in this past years NBA Draft, Thomas Robinson, along with Francisco Garcia and Tyler Honeycutt to the Houston Rockets in exchange for for Toney Douglas, Cole Aldrich, Patrick Patterson & cash.
It’s a completely out of the blue move that we here at A Royal Pain will break down in the coming hours – but needless to say – obvious that many Sacramento King fans are in shock, wondering just how many times they’re going to be kicked when down.
Right now – we’re all still trying to grasp the move.
