The Cavaliers continue to engage Sacramento on George Hill, sources told Yahoo Sports, and the Kings have quietly been looking for a third team to involve. The Cavs — who have little interest in taking on the $19 million Hill is owed next season — have pushed for J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert to be part of the package, a source said, which the Kings have no interest in.
As Mannix mentions, the Cavs are trying to unload large contracts in J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert to grab Hill but unsurprisingly, the Kings have no interest.
For Sacramento, the motive behind finding a third team would be to try to move that incoming money elsewhere, or in the hopes of securing some draft compensation.
No deal is imminent at this stage.
