Report: Kings Want Rondo, Willing to Trade Rudy Gay


The Sacramento Kings are out on the prowl and are looking to add some big guys to their roster.

It already seems like this year’s NBA free agency is going to be another frenzy. A new name has been added to the block and they are the Sacramento Kings. The Kings have a strategy and it involves a possible trade, which would be Rudy Gay in order to acquire Rajon Rondo. According to Adrian Wojnarowski, here’s what they have in mind:

For now, the Kings are pursuing trade scenarios for everyone on the roster, including talented forward Rudy Gay, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

Sacramento officials believe it will be difficult to find a trade partner that can give the Kings the value it wants for Cousins – and has a better chance to find a deal for Gay, sources said.

Creating cap space is also very important to the team right now.

Sacramento is motivated to find a way to create more salary-cap space with possible deals, something that the Kings will need to pursue Dallas Mavericks free-agent point guard Rajon Rondo, league sources said. The Kings and Rondo have a mutual interest, with Rondo intrigued with the idea of a potential one-year deal in Sacramento that could help to rebuild his league-wide value, sources said.

The Kings also have the No. 6 pick this year in the draft. With the clock winding down, it’ll be interesting to see if anyone calls up the Kings and makes this trade happen.
