Diamonds star Anthony Davis is reportedly headed to the free agency market, and according to ESPN’s Darren Rovell, that could include a trade.
Rovell said Wednesday on “The Dan Patrick Show” that the Kings and Kings Insider have confirmed that the two sides have agreed to trade for the veteran point guard.
Davis, 32, has been on a tear since signing a three-year, $45 million contract extension in April, leading the Kings to a first-place finish in the Western Conference last season and earning a first All-Star appearance in franchise history.
He has been a cornerstone of the Kings’ success since joining them from the Utah Jazz in 2010.
He also has helped the Kings win back-to-back championships in 2017-18, with the franchise having a 57-46 record since his arrival.
The Kings finished second in the West last season, but were swept by the Los Angeles Lakers in the first round of the playoffs.
Davis has a career .309/.383/.542 batting average in 3,068 plate appearances.
The Kings are also expected to make a trade this week, according to Rovell.
ESPN’s Adam Himmelsbach reported Wednesday that the Lakers are in the process of dealing their 2017 first-round pick, which is tied for eighth in the draft, to the Kings in a deal for center Kelly Olynyk.
