# 1 With the Wolves were we get the #1 pick , J.Johnson expiring $16,047,100 & Wolves would get Buddy
#2 with the Hawks were the Kings move up to the 6 pick + either Kevin Huerter or Cam Reddish & Hawks get Buddy . They have plenty of cap space to absorb the difference and this kind of a trade is allowed .
# 3 Most doubtful of the 3 based on part is with the Bulls for the # 4 pick & O.Porter expiring & Bulls get Buddy
Everyone has likely read about Bogi & The Bucks that could happen but it is really unlikely . If Bogi was traded which I doubt look for him & Barnes to be dealt to Boston for Hayward + either Kanter or Langford + multiple picks . I do not think 3 or 4 will happen and it is possible none will has many deals & talks fall through .
Of any though Kings & Wolves is most likely of the 4 and the Hawks is 2nd most likely .
Kings most likely traded
Either Buddy or Bogi ( most likely Buddy )
Parker ( would be a throw in possibly in a deal )
It sucks to say this but we will likely be a lottery team again after next season . We will make a splash or 2 . If there is a promising sign if we all pay attention closely to the moves we make and the salary cap space we will create . There will be a lot of promise for our future IMO season after next !
All three of these trades are heavily slanted in the Kings favor.
I would imagine if the Kings were talking about those picks it would cost #12 plus additional future draft capital.

To be clear when I made the post was because I could not guarantee all the parts that are exact in the coming and going . I never stated their would not be more parts either way to any deal so you know . It was general information based on talks just trying to give everyone some information .
Anyways a small update :
Looking more like the Minny deal will not happen .
However the Hawks deal in some capacity is looking more probable but again is certain . The main issue is the Kings do not want to give Buddy & the #12 . My personal opinion is the Kings would pull the trigger if it was Buddy and a 2nd for the #6 and a filler .
If that did happen I think the Kings would go after Obi Toppin or Onyeka Okongwu at # 6 and at #12 likely Devin Vassell or Aaron Nesmith should we keep the picks .
I am not claiming any info I am giving will actually happen however their are a lot of talks & I know that a lot of our talks are centering around teams with The Hawks , Celtics , New York , Phoenix , & Bucks . I do not think myself the Kings will trade Bogi to the Bucks but that is not for sure it is my opinion and opinion also based on if the Bucks really want Bogi they would need to pony up far more than they have been offering so far .
Lastly I expect the Kings will trade away 1 or 2 of our 2nd rounders this year as well .
Again as of now if Buddy gets traded right now the favorites to get him are the Hawks and then would say the Knicks would be 2nd favorites however the NBA can get crazy and between the draft , free agency and everything happening so fast we are going to see a mad crazy amount of trades between now and the next 2 weeks .
