ESPN Grades Kings Trade

3

Pelicans C+ "In sum, I think the Pelicans took their rebuilding cake out of the oven before it was fully baked. Next season will taste a lot better than it would have by patiently waiting out a couple more lottery picks, but in the long term I think New Orleans will regret its haste to try to get back to the playoffs. POR B+ SAC B "In fact, with lottery pick Ben McLemore in the fold, Vasquez may address a bigger need than Evans, albeit with far less upside......The most important aspect of this deal may be how the Kings spend the money that would have gone to Evans.......But if Sacramento can use the money on another piece to grow with its McLemore-DeMarcus Cousins core, this sign-and-trade may work very well."
