The Athletic‘s Sam Amick joined The Carmichael Dave Show with Jason Ross on Thursday morning to talk about how impressive Sacramento Kings center Domantas Sabonis has been this season, discuss what type of players that Kings GM Monte McNair should be looking to acquire this trade season, and much more.

Sabonis, who is making a bid at his third NBA All-Star appearance, posted his second 20-20 game of the season during Wednesday night’s win over the Toronto Raptors. The big man scored 21 points, grabbed 20 rebounds, and dished out seven assists over 40 minutes.

Topics discussed include:

  • At this rate, could Domantas Sabonis receive some MVP votes this season?
  • Amick on Sabonis: “He is absolutely playing fantastic basketball.”
  • Now that all NBA players are eligible to be traded, which players will Monte McNair target on the trade market?
  • Sam shares which player he thinks would fit in best on this current Kings roster
  • What would it take to trade Richaun Holmes’ contract? Would the Kings have to package in any other players?
