“Sacramento has to clear a roster spot to take on one or two additional players in a trade with Cleveland and has been discussing deals for the Kings’ young forwards Malachi Richardson and Skal Labissiere, league sources said.”Just two nights ago, Labissiere finished with 23 points, four rebounds, and two assists in a game against the Charlotte Hornets. Here were his highlights from the game:
So in an obvious rebuild, you look to trade a 21-year-old Skal Labissiere who is finally showing the promise we all saw coming out of high school, for 34-year-old Channing Frye and 4.4 PPG, $10.4-million man, Iman Shumpert. Get him out of Sacramento. Now.
Skal Labissiere has his flaws but still value in a 21-year-old 7-footer with his touch and agility. Someone to acquire if indeed available for cheap. Best basketball is ahead of him, especially if he's able to eventually play more C, where his feel limitations are less pronounced pic.twitter.com/J8cbVBF0R7— Mike Schmitz (@Mike_Schmitz) January 23, 2018
