The Sacramento Kings made their first (and only) trade of the 2023-24 NBA season, but it will not affect their roster. Per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, they acquired cash considerations in a Robin Lopez trade, who will be waived.

While unconfirmed, the Kings seem to have given up any players to the Milwaukee Bucks in the Robin Lopez trade. Sacramento currently has an open roster spot, which they could temporarily absorb Lopez into.

Helping facilitate Milwaukee dumping salary in the Robin Lopez trade landed them cash considerations without any cost. Yet, with plenty of moves around the association, the Kings’ roster remains the same.
