Kings Officially Acquire Tristan Thompson for Delon Wright

The trade is official and unchanged from original reports.

The Sacramento Kings announced that they have completed the trade to acquire Tristan Thompson. The Kings are sending Delon Wright to the Atlanta Hawks as part of the three-team trade.

There had been some speculation and rumors that the deal might have fallen apart, or that the final deal could be different than the initial reports, but from the Kings perspective the deal is going through without any changes.

It remains to be seen if this trade is a predecessor to other moves.

The trade sends away Wright, who was a versatile guard who could do a little bit of everything. But with De’Aaron Fox and Tyrese Haliburton as the backcourt of the future, and with the Kings adding guard depth when they drafted Davion Mitchell, Wright became the odd man out.

Thompson is a rebounding specialist. He has a reputation for defense as well but his play has fallen off in that area in recent years. Thompson is entering the final year of his contract.

I have no idea why we take on a useless player like Thompson for a good player like Wright which we just used two 2nd rounders to acquire and on top of that he ADDS OVER 3,000,000 TO OUR CAP SPACE…even Vlade wouldn’t make this trade…a certified Disaster!! We could have got good value for Wright from somebody…as Monty says he is a value added kind of guy…this guy is worthless. I was hoping before it completed it would be part of another trade but nope…another Kangz production!!
