Here are three NBA stars that the Sacramento Kings should target at the 2019-2020 NBA trade deadline as they attempt to end their playoff drought.

For many, the new year brings a chance for new beginnings. There are few franchises in the sports world with a more desperate need for a fresh start than the Sacramento Kings.

The team’s current 15-24 record has been a major disappointment for a team that began the season with postseason aspirations. The Kings are also in the midst of a playoff drought that dates back to the 2005-2006 season.

Sacramento’s slow start has fans and analysts turning their attention to the trade deadline to improve their postseason chances.

While the team would be foolish to part with their young core of De’Aaron Fox, Marvin Bagley, and Buddy Hield, they must also acknowledge that nearly two decades of irrelevance is unacceptable.

While many franchises have a championship-or-bust mindset, a team like the Kings would be thrilled for an opportunity to build on any type of playoff season.

Here are three star players that the Kings would be wise to target.
