In the midst of the blazing Northern California heat, the Sacramento Kings have had a busy offseason.
The purple and white have found their new assistant general manager and head coach in Ken Catanella and Dave Joerger hopefully for the long term, selected a total of four prospects in the NBA Draft, and signed five players in free agency.
With all the changes that the Sacramento Kings have had this summer, is another big move in the works?

When going through the updated roster for Sacramento, there are now surpluses at the shooting guard and small forward positions.
Kings fans, we want to hear from you. Do you expect the Kings sometime this summer to make a trade, specifically one that contains the two players listed above?
To express your opinion on the issue, feel free to participate in our survey that is currently up on our Twitter account.
I do expect a trade to happen where Sacramento gives up either McLemore, Gay, or both. The news is out that the Kings are actively trying to make a trade regarding the two players, but it looks like there haven’t been any offers that Vlade Divac and the crew are vastly interested in.
Sacramento is needed of another point guard on their depth chart. It looks like Darren Collison will remain on the Kings roster going into next season, so Sacramento doesn’t have to empty all their chips on a starting facilitator.
In my opinion, Gay and McLemore are the Kings top assets. Both are either established as a player or have a high ceiling to be great, both attractive traits for suitors. If either one is dealt, it should be enough to receive a solid player in return, perhaps a quality backup point guard.
With the news that the Kings are seeking to make a trade and the fact that there are now logjams at the shooting guard and small forward positions is why I believe the Kings will make a deal before the regular season starts.
There may not be a lot of noise happening now, but I expect the buzz to come eventually as long as the summer heat keeps shining down on California’s capital.
