Sacramento Kings are reportedly looking to make a major move this offseason, as pressure for establishing a winning mentality mounts for their front office.
According to Jason Anderson of the Sacramento Bee, the Kings are hoping to lure an All-Star player this offseason, being among the teams interested in Ben Simmons and Pascal Siakam.
“Multiple sources tell The Sacramento Bee the Kings have shown interest in both Ben Simmons and Pascal Siakam, the two most prominent names linked to Sacramento since the trade and free agency frenzy began. Some remain skeptical the Kings can pull off that kind of deal, but McNair wants to make an impact move as pressure to win begins to build within the organization 11 months after he was hired, sources said,” Anderson wrote in his latest piece.
According to Anderson, the Raptors are ‘listening to offers’ regarding Pascal Siakam, while Ben Simmons is placed in the ‘trade block’ from the Philadelphia 76ers.
Last season, Siakam averaged 21.4 points, 7.2 rebounds and career highs of 4.5 assists and 1.1 steals with the Toronto Raptors.
Simmons was a runner-up for the Defensive Player of the Year during this past regular season, being one of the most versatile defensive players of the league.
