AS I discussed in last week's post, I've once again gotten pretty fond of just about all these guys and would be sorry to see any of them go. But wins are what count in this business, and building towards a championship contender is the goal. To get there, you first have to have a team that can make the playoffs however. Will the team make a significant trade to bring in a Starting caliber vet to solidify the roster? I don't know either, but I do believe they try.
But we didn't end up discussing that question
Primer #1: Which of the young Kings would you be willing to give up for a Starting Caliber Vet? Would you give up our #7 pick?
Primer #2: Will they try before the current CBA expires? Before the draft - or wait?
Time to whip out that good trade you've been saving, for the doldrums of summer w/o Kings basketball is here.
This is the place for your well thought out trade idea!
This is also the place for all your pipe dreams, or for some wacky ill-advised nonsense just because the numbers match up in that Trade Machine Thingy.
Trade for players you love, trade away players you hate. Just trade to make the team better without regard to emotion - or make it all about emotion.
HINT: Think 'True' PG guard or ball handling, defensive SF. For either, a dead eye shooter from range would be preferable. Big time Stud - or short term enough so that you won't be crushed by "that kills our future flexibility!" comments.
But actually - do whatever you want!
Thats what this is here for, to keep other posts from wandering into 'I think we could still get LaBron!'.
Out-think Geoff Petrie!
(yeah, I'm leaving that line in)
You never know, you may gain wide acclaim and Fame for your brilliant move!

(Don't forget to 'save' the trade so you can share it and sum up the trade in text as well for those at office computers
In order for the KIngs toadd that starting Caliber vet they need, one of the Kings young assets will likely have to be included in any deal. Which of the Young Kings would you be willing to trade. Explain.
