Memphis & The Rubio Situation

19

Important snippets: - "The assumption is that Memphis will trade down a few spots, possibly to 4th, where Sacramento can offer either Jason Thompson or Spencer Hawes as added compensation." - "There are some concerns that being selected fourth won’t cut it, and Rubio has already come out publicly in the Spanish media and stated that it’s not a foregone conclusion that he’ll be leaving Joventut this summer." My take: I'd obviously really like to have Rubio, but Memphis better set its sights on something more like a trade of picks and Kenny Thomas' expiring contract. I mean, Thompson or Hawes as "added compensation"!?! What the hell would be the point of that? In essence, we'd be trading one hole (at PG) for another (at 4 or 5). I think I'd prefer a package of Thompson and Holiday over a lone Rubio. Perhaps I would be willing to give up Hawes, but I really don't know. Tough call there, because the only remedy to that situation seems like a trade for Ty Chandler. Now, if we could get Chandler to go w/ JT and Rubio, I'd give up Hawes, no problem...even if I prefer Hawes to Chandler straight-up. I'm a crazy Kings fan, what the hell do I know?
