Sacramento Kings Stand Pat At 2012 NBA Trade Deadline

The Sacramento Kings were believed to have most of their roster available in the right deal -- just about anyone other than DeMarcus Cousins and Isaiah Thomas could be had -- but the 2012 trade deadline has come and gone without any moves. Most thought Geoff Petrie was interested in trading J.J. Hickson, Donte Greene or even Tyreke Evans should he like a potential deal, but nothing came across his desk that enticed a move.

This really should not come as a surprise. It wasn't exactly like teams were lining up to acquire underperforming forwards like Hickson and Greene, and the price for Evans would likely be high given his team-friendly deal and young age.

Sacramento will now try and improve in the final weeks of the season, and they should be armed with yet another high draft pick come June. The team has drafted well in recent years and will have plenty of cap room to make a big deal if they can lure a free agent to town.
