Kings Go Full Kings, Hand Over Assets to Sixers to Make Run at Monta Ellis, Rajon Rondo

If the Kings were in a bar, they’d have been cut off for the night by this point, but this is the NBA and, aside from the Stepien Rule, teams are allowed to be as dumb as they want to be:

Oh, Kings. It’ll all be fine, Kings fans (no it won’t).

Sacramento traded not only Nik Stauskas, the team’s lottery pick last year, but they also included a future first-rounder and some pick swaps (though the Sixers would have to be better than the Kings to trigger the exchanges, and there’s no telling if the Sixers actually intend to be good at some point). It’s not all bad though, as the Kings will receive some foreign dudes and a future second-round pick, which is like robbing someone’s house and throwing some loose change on the floor before leaving:

On a serious note, this franchise is a mess. The crazy part is that they know it:

This is a bad team that just traded away two assets it needs to develop, not to mention veterans who might help a team that actually does want to win.

Sam Hinkie and the Sixers are obviously the big winners here, though it still remains to be seen how they turn into a real team, especially as teams like the Celtics show that the rebuilding is the easiest part of the process.
