The Cavs have made a trade sending J.J. Hickson to the Sacramento Kings for Omri Casspi and a first round lottery protected draft pick (which means if the Kings pick is in the top 14 the Cavs can’t use it). I love this deal for both teams. The Cavs acquire a player to play on the wing, and he gives them a guy who can shoot and can at least put the ball on the floor and be a threat to create his own shot. The draft pick gives them another asset to have in their pocket. The Kings get Hickson, someone to play with DeMarcus Cousins and give him some competition at the power forward spot. Which I think will be good for Cousins, and Hickson, they both will be in a position where they can lose minutes to one another which should breed competition and should make them both better players. Not often do you see trades that look on paper will make both teams better. But this is one that has seemed to do that.
New Cavalier Omri Casspi will join the Cavs J.J. Hickson will be moving west to Sacramento
along with a future 1st round pick Kings to team up with Tyreke Evans
