Tristan Thompson trade still expected to go through, per report

The final deal could end up looking different from the way it was originally reported.

The reported three-way trade that would send Delon Wright to Atlanta and Tristan Thompson to Sacramento is still expected to go through, according to a report from Keith Smith.

Smith suggests the final version of the trade could end up looking different, though. The initial report had the Kings sending Wright to the Hawks and getting Tristan Thompson back from Boston, largely viewed as a pretty poor return for Wright. Hopefully the final version of the deal will see the Kings getting something more.

There was speculation yesterday whether the deal would still go through, considering the Kings signed Alex Len and re-signed Richaun Holmes.

Since the deal was not completed before the end of Sunday, it now cannot be completed until August 6th. We could hear more details of the agreement leaked between now and then, but won't see any official confirmations.

Barring additional moves, the trade would leave the Kings with a big man rotation of Holmes, Len, Thompson, Marvin Bagley, Damian Jones, Chimezie Metu, and Neemias Queta. Considering Harrison Barnes also spent most of his time at power forward last season, it seems likely there may be additional moves coming to clear up this logjam of big men.

It would take more than that for Brown. My guess is that the Celtics would want either Fox or Haliburton in return.

I believe Reddish got moved from the Hawks before the draft- to OKC?
He would have been a nice addition. Drafted #10 in same year as Trae I think. But they thought they could not deal with the encroaching salaries and, in a sense chose Hunter over him.

This Greg guy got a little power for the first time in his life and he doesn’t know what to do with it. He’ll be nothing more than a struggling measly reporter managing a dopey blog and repeating what ever other competent reporter has already said. By the way he’s sent me several warnings about debates I’ve gotten in especially with you and Hessing. I thought you guys could handle yourselves but he seems to think you need him. What a light weight this guy is. I’m suspecting this will be my last post and a ban coming.

I tended to save my downvotes for comments that are overtly bigoted, trollish, or outright a-hole-ish. So I guess, if I were the down-voting/flagging type, flagging would be more appropriate anyway.

Yeah, I haven’t really had the time or desire to go find a team that might be looking for a back-up big, but they must be out there. i also wonder if adding a 2nd going to ATL might be enough to take a chance on Reddish. There was talk that they were trying to move him for a late-ish 1st. I wonder if Delon + a 2nd gets you there. Reddish isn’t great, but he has some talent, upside, and plays decent defense. Other non-elite wing prospects I’ve had my eye on that I think could be attainable include Brissett, NAW, Naji, Kenrich, Martin Jr., etc.

I had thought that Reddish was already traded but believe I was mistaken. He would be a great addition instead of TT.
Naji is more of a big than a wing.
Martin Jr. – how ironic- Kings traded the pick that was used on him for a future second from LAL which was used in the Wright trade.

yes the trade as reported was a complete disaster for the Kings. There’s some good assets out there that possibly can be had on very team friendly contracts. I think the Kings overpaid for Holmes and that has limited our options at his point. I was never an Otto Porter fan when a couple of years ago it seemed the whole Sactown Royalty site was clamoring for his services under this perception we needed a 3. Having said that Porter on a veteran minimum salary was a great pickup for Golden State and something for a little more might have been a nice pickup for the Kings. Let’s hope the Thompson deal gets voided and we can use the $1.2 mil savings for something useful. I’m not a big Markenam fan but perhaps he’s becoming great value at this point. Just a bunch of jumbled thoughts but strategic patience right now might yield us something cheap and useful.

Wright trade was wrong. Perplexing. Almost knee jerk: let’s get rid of a guard. Did have to sort out Fox + Hali+ Mitchell + Buddy ( if he stays) + Wright + TD. That’s 6. Need 4 or 5.
Now have 5 centers: Holmes, TT, Len, Jones and Q. Jones is team option and Q is G league.
I actually never liked Porter- some good stats but he was always hurt and his stats looked like empty calories. duds can jump up and down and high 5 all they want but I don’t expect him to be that valuable. 6 of their last 11 free agent signees never made it to the end of the year.
The deep insiders on the draft report that they did not want Kuminga and did not want him to fall (Too young) and would have taken Wagner or Giddey. For #14, they claim to have wanted Moody but tried to get Pacers to trade them for rights to Duarte after Pacers picked him at 13. I have some FA options for them: T-Robb, Jimmer and B-Mac but he signed in Portland.

yes, do not need TT. Sorry to see Wright go but there are too many guards. If Buddy traded for a SF we will miss Wright and say it was the wrong trade.
There is a theme here with recent moves: defense. Best defensive payer in draft, second rounder noted for defense. Harkless and Len and to a lesser extent Holmes noted for D. Not the perfect defense guys but they all do put the wood on you.
The entire Wright thing started with CoJo + 2 second round picks( late 40’s I think) for Wright then Wright for TT. Not at all a good move for the Kings. A Re-structure may help a lot.

Yup makes it easier to swallow the TT deal as long as Reddish is also heading to the Kings. If not, I just don’t know how to justify this move by Monte other than this could be some part of a bigger deal down the road. We shall see.

I was thinking about the Buddy/ Tobias Harris rumor, and how a Buddy package probably doesn’t give Philly enough assets to go through (even though Harris is on a horrible contract). At the same time, I’m warming up to letting Fox go to really shake things up.

So, in a trade proposal I’m sure everyone will love and that won’t be controversial at all, and one that definitely does not benefit at all from the new removal of downvotes, I present to you…

Philly: Fox, Buddy, Bagley
Sac: Simmons and Harris

This hurts our ceiling, I guess, but it substantially raises our floor and lets us compete for a good long while.

I am salivating about defense with Haliburton/Simmons/Barnes/Harris/Holmes with Mitchell off the bench. That is a ton of length starting, all good defenders, and you could have a lot of fun with switch-everything lineups. Any five of those six could play together in a cohesive way.

The only problem is you would have to score on the other end.

I don’t see how or why the Kings are still targeting TT. Even if Len is just a camp invite contract he can do nearly what TT does at a fraction of the cost. I understand they may want to move Wright to free up backcourt minutes elsewhere, but there has to be a better trade out there than TT, and if there isn’t right now, then just sit and wait.

I don’t think that a team can just back out of an agreed-to deal without there being consequences. It’s not official because of the moratorium, which is why there seems to be some wiggle room about the details. Whatever specific thing that locks in an NBA deal seems to have been done, and a team can’t unilaterally bail.

I don’t understand. How is there a moratorium on trades? I thought that was just on free agent signings.

It’s a moratorium on all activities, not just FA. The salary cap, luxury tax line is being set is why.

Then how has the #22 pick Isaiah Jackson already been traded twice since draft night?
