The Sacramento Kings are widely believed to be shopping the No. 5 overall pick in a trade. The Kings sit one spot below the consensus top four (Anthony Davis, Bradley Beal, Thomas Robinson and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, in some order), and they aren't necessarily looking to add a young player to their already-inexperienced roster. But it appears the Kings will not just deal the pick before they know which players will be available with their selection.
Kings will not entertain trading 5th pick until they see who is available, sources tell Y! Word is Sacramento loves Kansas' Thomas Robinson.— Marc J. Spears (@SpearsNBAYahoo) June 28, 2012
The Kings have been in discussions about a potential deal involving Kyle Lowry, but don't seem willing to pull the trigger. Robinson could very well fall in the draft if the Bobcats trade down or select Michael Kidd-Gilchrist at No. 2, because the Wizards, picking third, and the Cavaliers, picking fourth, don't have much of a need for a power forward like Robinson.
