Sacramento Kings and New York Knicks could trade guard Buddy Hield and big man Mitchell Robinson in an agreement that could benefit both teams and allow Robinson to get significantly longer playing time.

As explained by Greg Swartz of Bleacher Report, Robinson was the best Knicks player, who had a 21-45 record when the NBA suspended operations in March due to the coronavirus pandemic. Despite his height, athleticism and ability to block shots, the former second-round pick has just come off the bench behind the 34-year-old Taj Gibson.

Swartz suggested the Kings could acquire Robinson and give him the starting role he deserves, while also the landing point guard Frank Ntilikina, power forward Bobby Portis and a choice of the second round of 2021 in a theoretical agreement that would send Hield in New York.
