One NBA writer is proposing that the Sacramento Kings acquire Draymond Green from the Golden State Warriors.

Andy Bailey of Bleacher Report proposed the following trade idea between the Kings and Warriors:

The Deal: Draymond Green for Harrison Barnes, JaVale McGee, a 2024 second-round pick and a 2025 second-round pick (via Portland)

Green has been suspended by the NBA indefinitely after striking Phoenix Suns center Jusuf Nurkic in the head. Many people around the NBA believe the Warriors should part ways with the four-time champion since he hasn’t been able to control himself on the court and Bailey thinks Green can help the Kings.

“For Sacramento, this would fulfill this past summer’s rumors that had the Kings potentially hunting for Draymond in free agency,” Bailey wrote in his NBA trade proposal. “More than a quarter of the way into the season, it looks like their near-bottom-10 defense could use him. On that end, he and Keegan Murray would be switchable all over the floor, and Green would be better able to cover for Sabonis’ shortcomings than Barnes is. On the other, the Kings would suddenly have a wealth of frontcourt playmaking from Draymond and Sabonis. Add De’Aaron Fox to the mix, and this team would potentially have one of the least predictable offenses in the NBA.”

Green is averaging 9.7 points, 5.5 rebounds, 5.8 assists, 0.4 steals and 0.7 blocks this season while shooting 49.0% from the field, 42.9% from beyond the arc and 83.3% from the free-throw line.

The Kings, who are in fifth place in the Western Conference standings, could start De’Aaron Fox, Kevin Huerter, Keegan Murray, Green and Domantas Sabonis if Sacramento’s front office made this trade Bailey proposed.

Green stepped on Sabonis’ chest during the first round of the 2023 playoffs. It would certainly be awkward for Green and Sabonis to be teammates, but winning cures all and the Kings would be more dynamic on offense and defense with Green in the lineup.
