Yes.  Tyreke isn't an ideal point guard, but I think our offense would be okay with a further increase on team-wide ball movement.  I'd probably try to move Tyreke for a guy like Mike Conley / Kyle Lowry, but it's just too much talent coming back to pass up.

It would have been sad to see. KJ has definitely done his best to keep NBA at Sacramento.

For the trade, I'd do it. We get a good replacement for Rondo and a talented big man. Evans isn't Rondo, but he could score, also in a potential Rondo trade, he is one of the best PGs we could get.

Just remember Doc rotation problems.

The least players the better.

Supersonics?

I'm guessing the word is they plan on relocating.

I would do that deal in a heartbeat. That a great return. Evans and Bradley compliment each other well, as do KG and Cousins.
Triboy quick hits - Mickey ceiling is a better shot blocking but 6'8 version of Bosh. Mickey is going to be a gem but not likely a future hof. Mickey can't play the 3? Mickey has ability to spin with his right/left hand.  Shoot the 3. Blow by guys, fakes, up and unders, explosive finishes at rim. Hard to contain. You dont get the value of him yet.

The rumor:


Quote
Are the Sacramento Kings on their way to Seattle? The rumors were flying Wednesday morning.
The buzz started about midnight with a single tweet. "So I hear that the Seattle Kings is officially a done deal! The Maloofs finally sold the ailing Sacramento team." It was written by Daina Falk, a cookbook writer and foodie, who has since removed the Tweet from her page.

She is also a sports insider of sorts. Her father is David Falk, the pro sports super agent.

Falk followed up her first tweet with another saying she heard it from a friend.

The Kings aren't commenting. Neither is investor Chris Hansen.

What we do know for sure is the other city trying hard to get the Kings is out of the running for now. Virginia Beach, Virginia, couldn't reach a deal yesterday to get public financing for a new arena so that means the team is still available.

The deadline for asking the NBA to relocate in time for next season is March 1.

Yep, it seems like Maloofs are finally selling the Kings. Seattle group is the rumored buyer.

I always loved the Supersonics in Seattle. Same goes for the Kings in Sacramento. It would be weird to see teams getting mixed.

Haven't watched Evans enough to really say I guess.

Inclined to say no because its more of a move for the future (much more imo )

Rondo is an absolute superstar in the playoffs generally being top 3of playoff performer. You need a superstar in the playoffs like that. Tyree and Cousins have never played in a playoff game(not to mention they aren't earth shaterring in the regular season either).

They could want Abu Dhabi too, but if they sold the team their opinion matters as much as mine.

Agreed, I'd prefer somebody like Conley (who isn't going anywhere) or Lowry over Evans.  If you bring in Cousins, you need to have a point guard who can reliably get him the ball.

Also Evans is an awful shooter.  Worse than Rondo.
