Kevin Huerter is blossoming since arriving to Kings

Watching players perform after getting traded is always an interesting thought exercise. Will that player get an increase in role and usage and be able to spread their wings? Or will that player adapt to a similar role they had previously and fall in order?

Back in July, when the Sacramento Kings acquired Kevin Huerter from the Atlanta Hawks for Justin Holiday, Maurice Harkless and the Kings’ 2024 top 14 protected first-round pick, Sacramento made the bet that Huerter could be more than he was in Atlanta when given a bigger role.

So far, through six games, the trade has been a resounding success.
