With the NBA trade deadline one month away, teams are going to be preparing to make some moves in the coming weeks which means there will be a lot of rumors floating around.
The 15-23 Kings are only two games away from the eighth playoff spot in the Western Conference but that isn’t stopping them from shopping one of their best players, forward Rudy Gay.
According to Sheridan Hoops the Kings were ready to trade Gay to the Pelicans in exchange for forward Ryan Anderson, but the Pels went onto decline the offer.
The Sacramento Kings and New Orleans Pelicans are two of several teams that have aggressively worked the phones. The Kings called the Pelicans and offered Gay for Anderson, league sources tell SheridanHoops.
However, the Pelicans – who are in contention to land top lottery picks Ben Simmons and Brandon Ingram – have declined Sacramento’s proposal for now.
