Time to play Geoff Petrie: JJ Hickson

So at this point I think it's safe to say that JJ Hickson has been a huge disappointment. Out of all the offseason moves, including the draft, this was the guy I was most excited too see this season. And despite giving up the 1st rounder at the time, I still thought it was a decent risk. Then again this is the Sacramento Kings, and things rarely work out the way we hope.

So now what? We have a guy who's not producing and a 1st round pick tied up for years. For a team that has to build through the draft and trades, this is incredibly frustrating. Judging by his performance here, his recent comments to the Cleveland newspapers, and the fact that he's a RFA, I don't see any chance that he's a King next season. Our options at this point seem to be: A. continue the season and hope things turn around, B. continue the season and let him walk, along with the draft pick, this offseason for nothing, or C. move him at the trade deadline.

My vote would be move him at the trade deadline, and hope to get back some kind of asset now. I still think JJ can and will be a good player, and with the right team and the right offense, would be much more productive. What his trade value is now is a question mark, but I think it's safe to say the Kings would be selling low considering all they have invested.

What do you guys think? If you were Geoff what would you do? What kind of trade value do you think he has? Or do you think there is enough there to continue the season and hope Smart can turn things around?
