Bill Simmons purposes a trade for the kings in his latest column

I must say that although I used to like him, he's really mailing it in the last year or so. So don't be mad at the old man... that said, Its interesting the notion of trading Kevin Martin is such a widespread hypothesis that I wonder if will get to Kevin's head, eventually.

PS it looks eerily close to what is purposed in the trade thread... the sports guy reading STR:))?

....Fake Trade 12: Martin/Thomas to Utah for Andrei Kirilenko (expires 2011), Kyle Korver's EC, $3 million (not a problem because Utah still saves $3.2 million with the difference in salaries, plus another $3.2 million in luxury tax money) and the rights to New York's unprotected No. 1 pick in 2010.

(Hold on, we have to wait a few seconds for every Knicks fan to stop shaking his or her head. Just a few more seconds. Hold on. Hold on. Hold on. And … we're good.)

I love this trade. For one thing, a Martin-Deron Williams backcourt would be loads of fun (shades of Utah teaming Hornacek and Stockton back in the day). Utah gets damned close to being under the luxury tax. Sacramento gets a gigantic expiring contract for next year (Kirilenko's $17.8 million), another scrappy, balls-to-the-wall guy (Kirilenko again), an official "this is your team" announcement to Evans AND a lottery ticket for the John Wall Sweepstakes.

Everyone wins. You can't say that too often during Year 2 of the No Benjamins Association.
