They’ve [Houston] been talking to the Kings, as Marc Stein and I reported late Sunday night, for several days about what it would take to get the number five pick. I think that now, that more people are finding out that that’s happening, the fact that the Kings have worked out several prospects that are mid-first rounders, and frankly, virtually every agent in the NBA that has a prospect that’s slotted somewhere in the mid-first round believes that the Kings will be there, not the Rockets. The speculation begins about what it will take. From my understanding, there was never discussion about big-time players with Sacramento. This was not about a Tyreke Evans swap or a Kyle Lowry swap, with Sacramento. This was about picks and perhaps another young player or two from the Rockets roster, like for example Sacramento has some interest in one of the former Rockets first round picks, the draft rights to Donatas Motiejunas the Lithuanian forward, for example.

Chad Ford on The Scott Van Pelt Show via ESPN Radio Ford goes on to say that he is unsure if the Rockets can make this deal happen. He also says Houston really likes Andre Drummond at number five. The clip is just over seven minutes long but starts off with the Kings-Rockets chatter.
