Boston Celtics trade No. 1

The Sacramento Kings have been mired in mediocrity for quite some time now, and this season is looking to be no different. It may finally be time to blow up their inconsistent core group, and look to build around De’Aaron Fox and Tyrese Haliburton. That would mean moving on from guys like Buddy Hield and Marvin Bagley III.

Swapping Hield for Schroder essentially would be an interesting move, but one that is beneficial for both sides. Hield is a shooter, and while he isn’t much of a playmaker, his playstyle is a much better fit in the offense’s than Schroder’s currently is. The Kings would get some salary cap relief by taking on Schroder’s diminutive salary, which would be very beneficial for them down the line.

Bagley is a bit more complicated. He’s shown tons of potential throughout his career, but has never come close to reaching it with Sacramento. Combine that with numerous trade requests and drama, and it’s a miracle he is still playing for the Kings.

The C’s could take a flier on Bagley here and hope a change of scenery could bring out the best in him. Bagley has proven to be a gifted interior scorer, and he could be the perfect candidate to play either alongside Robert Williams, or give him rest when he’s tired. On the other hand, Horford offers the Kings another nice contract for next season, and some consistency they didn’t necessarily have with Bagley.

Next. Celtics continue to be the brokers of heartbreak. dark

Both teams seem to be trending in the wrong direction currently, but a move like this could be very beneficial for both sides. The Boston Celtics get some young scoring help, while the Kings will get some much needed cap relief to help them reverse their fortunes in the future. It may not be the most exciting trade, but it’s one that would almost certainly help both teams for now and down the line.
