Report: Kings talking to Cavaliers about Jarrett Jack for Jason Thompson

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

ESPN's Marc Stein is reporting that the teams are actively engaged in conversations.

The Sacramento Kings are engaged in trade talks with the Cleveland Cavaliers, with talks centering on Jason Thompson and Jarrett Jack, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

It's unsurprising that the Kings are shopping Thompson, as one of the few remaining holdovers from the Geoff Petrie era.  He's been speculated to be on the trade block all season.

It's also unsurprising that the Cavaliers are hesitant to take Thompson directly, as he's owed over $6 million per season for the next three years.  Thompson also has a 5% trade kicker, making any trade a tougher pill for teams to swallow.

The continued trade chatter confirms suspicions that the Kings will remain active right up to the deadline.  Stay tuned.
