ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski mentioned today that the Kings, Hawks and Grizzlies are receiving a high volume of calls from teams trying to trade up. The main two teams trying to trade up are the Nuggets and aforementioned Clippers, per Wojnarowski.
The Kings have traded down in the past two drafts and have received some decent value in return. The team may be looking to stand pat this time around, especially considering they are all the way up at No. 2.
The NBA Draft is this Thursday in New York.
