Sacramento 5th Pick to Toronto Raptors?
As we all know Toronto and Sacramento have been mentioned in many articles concerning Hedo Turkoglu and Anders Nocioni.Sacramento also has been mentioned in many articles in needing a SF, wanting to trade down in the draft and needing a true physical C. Now Toronto doesnt currently have the value Sacramento is interested in to aqcuire the 5th pick. But what about a 3 way trade?
MIAMI HEAT RECIEVE
Sacramento's 5th Overall Draft Pick
Miami's 18th Overall Draft Pick
Miami's 41st Overall Draft Pick
Toronto's 13th Overall Draft Pick
Miami's 48th Overall Draft Pick
give sacramento the 41st and toronto the 48th on second thought
Sorry I also meant to mention by trading down to 13 they can target Aldrich or Orton.
He'll play SF and some SG while Tyreke plays Point Guard...I want Another top 5 pick and salary relief...would Kings fans want Iggy instead of Monroe or Cousins...
I don't think Sacramento gets enough back to give up the 5th pick.
They have too many SF's and you took 1 away and gave them 2 lol. JMO.
Sounds good.I think Philly isnt really shopping Iggy so to speak but just luring him out there and trying to catch a really really big fish.
Tayshaun Prince and the 7th with Daye for the 5th and Nocion is also a possibillity.
as a sacramento kings fan, i would be ecstatic if this deal went down. Althoug many fans believe we already have too many SF's, which we totally do, Hedo would definitely be an upgrade in talent, plus the addition of Mike Beasley, which i believe would work out much better in sacto because its basically the worst party town in the country lol. with the13th target whiteside or bradley, with the 33rd try to pick up seraphin or Crawford, then with the 41st try for vasquez. lineup might looksomething like this:
(in the future) Whiteside/Hawes/Thompson
Michael Beasley is a headcase and i would much rather take a chance on Cousins (possible headcase with a ton of talent) than Beasley (a proven headcase with unproven talent). Hedo is a fan favorite but why would the kings give up so much to have a player before and after his prime... i do agree hedo would be an improvement, help mentor Casspi, and help Tyreke with some ball handling but if we can do a straight up trade for Nocioni and maybe some lesser players then great... if not then it doesn't make sense.
I would rather roll the dice with Cousins because Hawes will always be a backup and we can't possibly match up with Thompson as our center... Cousins makes the most sense right now and could either be an amazing duo with Evans or a huge bust... but as a long time Kings fan i would take the risk rather than live another 5 years in mediocrity invested in mediocre talent.
Just my 2 cents...
I like the trade but I think Sacramento wouldn't want to pass up on Demarcus Cousins. He could bring a lot to the table for them and compliment their current core very well.
All the Kings need to get back into the playoffs is a few years of good drafting. They have the perimeter allstar in Tyreke Evans, they have good complimentary bigs. All they need is to take a big this year, I think Cousins, and take a good wing next year, maybe William Bufford or someone idk.
that trade is impossible with bosh included simply because of when the draft happens and when free agency starts... bosh will be a free agent... and cant be traded... unless its a sign and trade AFTER the draft...
Teams cannot negotiate sign-and-trades with pending free agents until after the draft, and no free agent-to-be is going to bypass the opportunity to go out and be recruited.
Trades may very well be done to position themselves for July 1, and I tend to believe Miami would be the most likely team to use draft night to jockey for position, but it won't be for Bosh.
Who will it be for?
I think they want to clear more money. If they can move their 15th and Beasley, they'll be able to afford to max out Wade and still have just under $30 million for two near max players. This is why the Keyon Dooling for Beasley rumor came up a few weeks ago. Beasley for Delonte West would have the same effect, though if they have dreams of chasing LeBron they might not want to offer Cleveland Beasley for cap savings.
