• The Kings and Cavs are reportedly still discussing a deal centered on guard George Hill according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

    This news stems from the report that the Cavs have expressed interest in Hill, but it sounds as though it’s a little more than just interest.

    ESPN’s Brian Windhorst said earlier today that the deal between Sacramento and Cleveland is “way down the road.” The deal isn’t imminent but both sides are motivated to complete a trade.

    Iman Shumpert and Channing Frye are two players that are also included in the ongoing conversations. Derrick Rose may also be included according to Windhorst.

    Marc Stein of the New York Times confirmed the two sides are talking and said that the Kings would likely receive draft compensation if the deal goes ahead. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski mentioned a second round pick going to Sacramento has been discussed.

    Stein added that Frye “would certainly feature” in any potential Cavs-Kings trade and that he would instantly become a candidate on the buyout market.

    Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee added that the Kings are trying to unload a couple of players to make this trade possible. Jones said that the Kings could find a taker for one or two of their younger players or a team looking for veteran help as each of the other four veterans are receiving interest on the trade market.

    The Kings have been discussing deals for Malachi Richardson and Skal Labissiere to clear roster spots according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. The Sacramento Bee has since confirmed that the Kings have made both Richardson and Labissiere available.

    League sources said the Kings are exploring trades that would allow them to unload one or two young players, with second-year players Skal Labissiere and Malachi Richardson having been made available.

    If the Kings cannot find a trade partner to clear up a roster spot, they may be forced to buy out or waive someone, per Jones.

    USA Today’s Sam Amick reports that the Cavs-Kings trade isn’t expected to go down today, but it’s very real.

    It sounds like the hold up in the potential Hill deal is that the Kings need to clear roster space, as mentioned earlier, so discussions cannot advance until that has happened according to Brian Windhorst of ESPN.
