Grab a big from Sacramento

The Kings are at a strange point in their rebuild. After shipping off center DeMarcus Cousins last season, Sacramento grabbed a ton of talent this offseason.

Veterans like Zach Randolph and former-Net Vince Carter signed in Sacramento, turning their rebuild from asset aquisition to looking for mentors for their young core. Add in the acquisitions of Harry Giles, De’Aaron Fox, Frank Mason III and a few others via the NBA Draft, the Kings may look to make moves to compete sooner rather than later.

If there’s one place the Kings are dominant in as of now, it is the frontcourt. They have Randolph, Giles, Willie Cauley-Stein and Skal Labissiere splitting minutes at the four and five. But big men Kosta Koufos and Georgios Papagiannis might get lost in the mix. The Kings may look to move one or both of them for cheap or close to nothing.

Both players’ contracts are not terrible and can be cheap but useful additions to a roster that lacks size. The Nets have a few players they can ship out if they elect to attempt to acquire either one of the two. Harris can be possibly included, as he has an expiring deal and is likely to have a small role with the team.

Neither player has really shown anything special or game changing, but both men are realistic trade options.They are not projected to have major impact on the new-look Kings, so it’s safe to say the Nets can maybe one of the two for cheap.
