The Kings make a win-now move for a star.

The Kings have done a good job of building a team that complements Fox and Sabonis. Harrison Barnes has brought high-level shooting and leadership to a young squad that needed someone who has been there before. Malik Monk is one of the best sixth men in the NBA due to his explosive scoring ability.

Keegan Murray is continuing his ascension as one of the better young players in the league. The roster is littered with depth and talent. Now, the Kings need to cash in on it in the name of star power. Adding LaVine would make them much more dangerous, as the Kings need another three-level scorer to pair with Fox.

As good as Sabonis is, he is a liability when it comes to shooting and can be unreliable at times as a second-scoring option. We all saw him crash and burn against the Warriors last postseason. LaVine is a dynamic guard who can explode for 40 on any given night. He has the athleticism and scoring skills to make a potent backcourt duo with Fox. Next, we'll take a look at a potential blockbuster deal between the Kings and Bulls.
