2. Center position
As it stands, the Kings find themselves in a jam at the center position.
Dedmon remains the most likely suitor to be traded due to a trade request earlier in the season regarding playing time. However, the center’s three-year, $40 million contract would make him an expensive acquisition for any team.
Yet, there are still teams that are scouring for a center that could be willing to trade for the big man. The Atlanta Hawks are a team that has publicly been on the prowl for a center, looking at big names such as Andre Drummond and Steven Adams.
A reunion with Atlanta or a sendoff elsewhere could grant Dedmon his request and free up the clogged center position, making it unlikely he remains on the team.
