NBA Rumors: Sacramento Kings in talks to trade Marcus Thornton to Brooklyn Nets

The Sacramento Kings have been attempting to trade Marcus Thornton for quite some time and it’s possible they may have found a suitor in the Brooklyn Nets.

According to Yahoo Sports, the Kings and Nets are having discussions about a deal that would send Thornton to Brooklyn in exchange for Jason Terry and Reggie Evans.

Sacramento and Brooklyn discussing a deal centered on Marcus Thornton for Jason Terry and Reggie Evans, league sources tell Yahoo Sports.

While there may be more players involved, that’s the base layer of a proposed deal.

Wojo does suggest that it’s just one of many deals both Brooklyn and Sacramento are involved/talking about, so by no stretch is this a for sure thing – but it does appear to be on the table.

It’s not exactly much of a money saving deal for Sacramento as Thornton is due $8.5 million next season (the final year of his deal) while Terry makes $5.8 and Evans $1.7 in the final year of their deals next season. The addition of Terry would give the Kings more of a ‘true’ point guard however.
