Sacramento Kings trade Marco Belinelli to Charlotte for 22nd pick

Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

We have a trade and boy is it a doozy.

Vlade Divac somehow managed to convince the Charlotte Hornets to take Marco Belinelli coming off his worst season and with two years left on his deal for the 22nd pick in this year's draft.  That's incredible.  The Kings now have the 8th and 22nd picks in the draft and just freed up some more cap space for this summer.

Belinelli had an incredibly disappointing year for the Kings, and the fact that they were able to get a first round pick for him is kind of incredible.  We'll see if this is the only move they make tonight but even if is, it's a move in the right direction for the Kings.
