2. Sacramento Kings
The Kings have been in on Siakam from the very start, and they should be a partner Toronto is very interested in doing business with. Monte McNair was willing to move off Tyrese Haliburton, showing some uncommon aggression when it comes to adding a player he likes.
While it’s unlikely that Toronto would land a player like Keegan Murray, Sacramento’s second unit and a contract like Harrison Barnes’ that could be used for ballast might be enough to get the Raptors interested. The Kings slotting Siakam into the starting lineup would help one of the best offenses in the league be even more lethal.
The Sacramento Kings could get Pascal Siakam from the Toronto Raptors.
With Sacramento being a tough draw for free agents and the De’Aaron Fox/Domantas Sabonis 1-2 punch starting to hit their peak, McNair might be willing to pay more than face value if he can get a big name. Toronto needs to capitalize on their desire to win now.
Davion Mitchell seems like a player who was born to play for Masai Ujiri, and one of either Kevin Huerter, Malik Monk, or Chris Duarte would be a welcome addition. If the Kings cough up picks, there’s a chance Siakam will be wearing Kings purple and grey in the future.
