Kings Likely To Trade No. 7 Pick In 2011 NBA Draft, Say Reports

Yahoo!'s Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the Sacramento Kings are privately indicating that they plan to trade the No. 7 pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, following similar reports from Sacramento-based Sam Amick of SI.com. The Kings had been rumored to be considering Kemba Walker, Jimmer Fredette and Kawhi Leonard with that pick.

There's no clarity on what the trade will be as of yet, though the Kings popped up in seemingly serious Tony Parker rumors on Tuesday. Raymond Felton has also been mentioned; the Kings are known to be looking for a point guard to help Tyreke Evans run Sacramento's offense. Parker is 29 years old and under contract for the next three seasons. Felton is younger and cheaper, but only under contract through the 2011-12 season.

The Kings have more cap space than any other team in the league, and as such can absorb quite a bit of salary in a deal for a veteran player. For more on the Kings, visit Sactown Royalty.
