The Sacramento Kings love Isaiah Thomas, but that doesn’t mean they’re not in the market for a more traditional point guard – that’s the word from Yahoo Sports’ Marc J. Spears.

The NBA insider made the brief mention in his most recent power rankings.

The Kings still like Isaiah Thomas, but they are also interested in acquiring a true point guard as the trade deadline approaches, a source said.

Spears is plugged in to both the Warriors and Kings given his Northern California ties and is no slouch when it comes to accuracy.

An addition of a more traditional point guard isn’t exactly ‘new’ news considering the Kings have reportedly been in the market to acquire ousted Denver Nuggets point Andre Miller for some time, but it could be a sign they’ve expanded their potential possibilities..

Sacramento could also be looking long term in regards to adding a point guard considering Isaiah Thomas will be a restricted free agent at season end.

While it’s unlikely Sacramento would let him go, you can’t go into free agency under the assumption no team will make him a significant offer.
