This news comes a day after the Brooklyn Nets were reportedly discussing a deal with the Cavaliers involving Jack and Jason Terryvia ESPN's Ohm Youngmisuk and Stein.

Jack is averaging 8.5 points and 3.7 assists this season as Kyrie Irving's backup, shooting 39.7 percent from the floor. It's been a disappointing downturn after his excellent season as the Golden State Warriors' sixth man last year, but a somewhat predictable one given the fact that he is sharing minutes with ball-dominant guards Irving and Dion Waiters. Cleveland signed Jack to a four-year, $25.2 million contract in July, but the last year is almost fully unguaranteed.

The Kings have been searching for a point guard to back up Isaiah Thomas for a while now, and were linked with the Denver Nuggets' Andre Miller earlier this season. Jimmer Fredette is currently playing that role, but is more of a natural scorer than a distributor.

The trade deadline is Thursday at 3 p.m. ET.
