1. Danuel House

The third option on this list, Danuel House, is an interesting one. He has a less impactful history than the other two but he is a small forward, which the Kings could definitely use.

House spent last season and the beginning of this one with the Philadelphia 76ers, playing rotational minutes. His impact was never very big, however, and on the day of the trade deadline, he ended up with the Pistons in a salary dump move. 

Detroit immediately waived the veteran, so now other teams are free to go out and get them if interested. 

For the Kings, he is certainly an option. Offensively, House probably would not bring too much to the court, considering his career up to date. He adds wing depth, size, some decent defense, and a bit of playoff experience, though. 

Again, House would not be a real difference maker—those aren’t really out there on the buyout market—but there are definitely worse players to have on your roster, and it might be worth a shot to add another, more experienced, small forward to the bench. Sasha Vezenkov and Trey Lyles are both natural power forwards, leaving the Kings with Chris Duarte and Kessler Edwards on the bench. Neither are in the rotation, and there is a huge hole to fill behind Harrison Barnes and Keegan Murray, especially when it comes to defense.
