Kings, Blazers Swap Skal Labissiere, Caleb Swanigan

The Kings have sent Skal Labissiere to the Trail Blazers in exchange for Caleb Swanigan in a swap of little-used power forwards, tweets ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

A late first-round pick in 2016, Labissiere has barely played this season, appearing in 13 games and averaging 8.7 minutes per night. The Kings already picked up his option for next season, which will pay him $2,3MM.

Swanigan is averaging 8.1 minutes in 18 games. He will make a little more than $2MM next year.

    Fun fact: The Blazers have gone the longest of any NBA team playing without a Kentucky alum. The last UK player for Portland was Jamaal Magloire in 2006-07. Looks like that might be broken.

    Swanigan is still just 21 but I expected much more. Maybe new surroundings etc
