Udrih a trade chip for Kings?

18

"As Ailene Voisin of the Sacramento Bee points out today, Beno Udrih is having a career year in Sacramento despite the Kings owning the second-worst record in the NBA. The crafty combo guard also happens to have the second-highest salary on the 2010-2011 Kings roster, trailing only Samuel Dalembert, and is on the hook for next season with a $7.81 million player option for 2012-13 he's almost certain to exercise. If there was ever a time to unload Udrih to a contender, wouldn't it be now, when his stock is the highest its ever been? When he's averaging career highs in points (14.1) and rebounds (3.5), and still shooting as accurately as ever (51 percent from the floor, 37 percent from 3-point range, 84 percent from the free throw line). What contenders could use a little help scoring from one of its guard spots? Chicago comes to mind first. The Bulls are desperate for another scorer, especially at the off guard where they have been forced to start journeymen Keith Bogans and Ronnie Brewer all season. What about Dallas? They Mavs have lost seven of eight and could use scoring from its aging backcourt of Jason Kidd and Jason Terry. They have a ton of players it could include in a deal. Utah is another; can the Jazz advance deep in the playoffs with Raja Bell as their main shooting guard? Udrih would be a nice fit for any of these teams."
