The Sacramento Kings have a solid core, but are they missing a big piece?

Longtime broadcaster and former Kings head coach Jerry Reynolds joined The Drive Guys this week to dive into some offseason conversations surrounding the Beam Team.

Should Sacramento look to trade for a big name? Does Chicago Bulls guard Zach LaVine, a player the Kings have been linked to in the past, have the skillset to mesh with Sacramento’s core of De’Aaron Fox, Domantas Sabonis, and Keegan Murray?

Jerry and Kevin Gleason covered it all below:

Topics Discussed

  • Jerry thinks that Zach LaVine could be a good fit with this Kings core
  • “There are probably going to have to be some risks… Besides health, the risk with Zach is the contract.”
  • If healthy, Jerry says Sacramento would be getting “the most talented player” in a potential Kings-Bulls swap
  • Would a LaVine trade be more enticing for Sacramento since it likely wouldn’t cost draft compensation?
  • If the sale goes through, new Minnesota Timberwolves ownership plans to cut payroll
  • Would Karl Anthony-Towns be a player that the Kings should chase via trade?
  • The New Orleans Pelicans won’t extend Brandon Ingram, meaning he could be on the move this summer
  • Jerry and Kevin agree that Sacramento could find value at 13th in the NBA Draft

Listen to The Drive Guys from 2 to 6 p.m. PST, Monday through Friday, on Sactown Sports 1140. You can also subscribe to their podcast here.
