Suns Acquire No. 8 Pick From Kings, Draft Chriss

10:40pm: The Kings have officially announced the swap (via Twitter).

7:24pm: The Suns and Kings have agreed to a trade that will send the No. 8 pick to Phoenix, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical (via Twitter). According to Jeff Goodman of ESPN.com (Twitter link), the pick will be Washington power forward Marquese Chriss.

In return, Sacramento will receive Bogdan Bogdanovic and the Suns’ pick at No. 13, according to Shams Charania of The Vertical (Twitter link). Phoenix’s pick at No. 28 will also be included, along with a second-rounder in 2020, tweets John Gambadoro of Arizona Sports 98.7. That second-round pick originally belonged to the Pistons (Twitter link).

Earlier today, Bogdanovic decided to remain in Turkey for another season before joining the NBA. That decision gives him the freedom to negotiate a salary in 2017, rather than being bound by a rookie contract, which would have happened if he had signed during this offseason.

I dont know what is funnier, the Kings trading down for Bogdanovic or the Sun’s drafting 2 power forwards in the Top 10

What about them taking another big. Because obviously Boogie Cousins, Koufos, and Cauley-Stein isn’t enough.

I love how the NBA can trade picks 5 years in advance.

Just love what the Suns did. Playing the odds at least one of these guys is going to be a star (hopefully both)

Think the Kings actually wanted Papagansis (I most definitely misspelled his last name) or did we do them dirty by selecting him for them?
They’ve got a star in Cousins and the number six pick from last years draft , I believe, in Willy Cauley Stein.

Kings most likely wanted him. Since the trades during the draft aren’t approved at the time, teams could theoretically back out at any time. If the Suns drafted a guy that the Kings didn’t want, I’m sure the Kings would’ve backed out.
