The NBA trade deadline is at noon today and the Kings are in the midst of many trade rumors.

The Kings will be actively looking to make deals as has always been the case under Pete D’Alessandro.

It’s no secret the team would love to deal Jason Thompson, which has been the case for some time. There have been talks about trading Ramon Sessions, too.

Reports have the Kings trying to acquire disgruntled Phoenix point guard Goran Dragic, but Sacramento is not somewhere he’d sign with after the season. That makes parting with a young player like Nik Stauskas and a draft pick to acquire Dragic risky.

The Kings had been looking at “minor” deals according to a source before the Dragic talk picked up.
