The Kings will extract some sort of draft comepsation if they go ahead with the proposed trade of George Hill to Cleveland for Iman Shumpert and Channing Frye, according to league sources— Marc Stein (@TheSteinLine) January 23, 2018
Channing Frye’s $7.4 million expiring contract would certainly feature in any Cleveland/Sacramento swap and Frye would likely become an immediate candidate on the buyout market, league sources say— Marc Stein (@TheSteinLine) January 23, 2018
Hill has been looking for a trade after signing a three-year, $57 million deal he signed with the Kings this offseason, and he has been unhappy with their place in the standings this season. On the flip side, Sacramento was shopping him because they are not happy with his level of play (10.3 ppg, 2.8 apg) and want to give rookie De'Aaron Fox more playing time.
However, Cleveland is interested in Hill as a quality veteran who will give their bench units some stability from the point guard spot.
The Cavs tried to deal Iman Shumpert this offseason, yet Sacramento is hoping to cash in on his defensive abilities. He is averaging just 4.8 points and 3.1 rebounds per game this season.Back to the Cleveland Cavaliers Newsfeed
