Kings Seeking Small Forward

A report last week suggested the Kings are aggressively pursuing trade possibilities, and according to Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports, the team has a specific position in mind. Spears reports that the Kings are “actively searching” for a small forward.

The Kings added a small forward over the summer when they acquired Luc Mbah a Moute, who has started several games for the team so far. But Mbah a Moute is more of a role player than a long-term solution at the three, and is off to a slow start, averaging career-lows in points, rebounds, and minutes per game.

Last week’s report indicated that the Kings were looking to move veterans, and Spears specifically names Marcus Thornton as one player Sacramento would “love” to move. However, Thornton is owed $8MM+ in each of the next two seasons, so finding a suitor willing to give up anything of value for him and his contract won’t be easy.
