The deadline has come and gone and the Kings didn’t make a ton of noise. Most of the fanbase wanted a backup big man to help the interior defense issue, but instead, GM Monty McNair decided to stand pat. It definitely poses a few questions going forward after most of the Western Conference was quite active on deadline day.
McNair did however make a small move, acquiring forward Kessler Edwards from the Brooklyn Nets. The move wasn’t talked about too much around the league, but Edwards could make a real impact in the future on the defensive side of the ball. The move was a true low-risk, medium-reward transaction.
That being said, the hole at backup center is still present. Alex Len and Richaun Holmes just don’t seem to fit the Mike Brown mold as there’s a real need for someone to take some pressure off Domantas Sabonis.
Many players will hit the buyout market soon: Who will the Kings target?
Today we take a look at some of the most intriguing names the Sacramento Kings could target on the buyout market. There are a few rim protectors on this list that would make perfect sense for the Kings going forward. Keep in mind the list isn’t full of world-beaters.
Also, no, Demarcus Cousins isn’t on this list. Not sure why he isn’t in the league, but it’s just not going to happen. (Although it would be SO fun)
