As we reach a dryer period in the off-season, we start to see ideas pop up to cure our boredom as we wait until the next NBA tip-off.
On Sunday, Bleacher Report proposed a trade for the Sacramento Kings that saw a Davion Mitchell exit – one of the Sacramento Kings’ young, lock-down defensive point guards.
Mitchell is coming off a statistical dropoff from his rookie to sophomore season, averaging 5.6 points, 2.3 assists, and 1.3 rebounds per game compared to his 2021-22 NBA season averages of 11.5 points, 4.2 assists, and 2.2 rebounds. However, Mitchell also averaged 9 fewer minutes per game, and his stats are incredibly misleading.
Mitchell has an extremely high defensive IQ and is clamps on defense. His abilities will only continue to improve with time.
Earlier in the off-season there were rumors that the Western Conference rival Phoenix Suns were interested in Davion Mitchell. Mitchell is a great trade asset and is still on his rookie deal for two more years after the Kings exercised a team option to keep Mitchell in Sacramento next season.
Regardless, the Kings and Sacramento fans alike highly value Mitchell and his abilities and would like to see him play a more prominent role in the team moving forward, so what would it take to get him out of Sacramento?
Bleacher Report proposes a bizarre trade.
