Last time Kevin Huerter was in Sacramento, he put up 25 points on 10/18 FG & 11 rebounds, leading the Hawks to a win without Trae Young. pic.twitter.com/jzKxX3BST26:29 PM

I momentarily forgot Kevin Huerter got traded to the Kings.
I kind of love that deal for Sacramento. Huerter is pretty good. – 4:13 PM
Matt George @MattGeorgeSAC
Kings got shooters, but they also have versatility. Huerter can play the 3. We know Barnes can slide to the 4. Murray can play the 3-5 (in a really small lineup). Fox and Mitchell can play on/off ball with each other.
Mike Brown has a lot of options. That’s a coaches dream. – 3:12 PM

Here’s our first reaction to the Kings landing Kevin Huerter: youtu.be/BVbGAiLIKQo2:36 PM
Sarah Todd @NBASarah
Silver lining: no one is going to have to see Huerter in that sharp yellow the Jazz would have put on him. – 2:32 PM
Ben Rohrbach @brohrbach
The timing of the Huerter/Brogdon trades sure feels like the Celtics were probably weighing the merits of both today. – 2:23 PM

Sacramento was one of multiple teams who pursued Kevin Huerter after the Dejounte Murray deal to Atlanta, source tells AP. Boston had interest, among others. – 2:04 PM

This has been a very solid offseason for Sacramento so far. Their problems aren’t solved but no question they’ve improved. Significantly, I believe. – 1:44 PM

My instant trade grade is up on the Huerter-to-Kings swap. Brogdon-to-Celtics should be up shortly:

Y’all were so mad about Huerter going elsewhere lol. – 1:39 PM

League source confirms the Sacramento Kings are trading Justin Holiday, Maurice Harkless and a future first-round draft pick to the Atlanta Hawks for Kevin Huerter, a 23-year-old, 6-foot-7 guard who averaged 12.1 points, 3.4 rebounds and 2.7 assists last season. – 1:36 PM
Brian Robb @BrianTRobb
Kevin Huerter is off the board but still plenty of names out there that could fit into the Celtics biggest TPE. A look at those and how the Gallinari deal could impact offseason possibilities: masslive.com/celtics/2022/0…1:34 PM

Hawks trade Kevin Huerter to Sacramento for Holiday, Harkless, 1st round pick

John Hollinger @johnhollinger
Looks like Hawks get a $3.65M TPE out of this Huerter trade. – 1:26 PM
Sean Cunningham @SeanCunningham
The first round pick heading in the trade from Sacramento to Atlanta in the Kevin Huerter deal is a 2024 lottery-protected first-round pick. Which will become top 12 protected in 2025 & then top 10 protected in 2026. – 1:24 PM
Brian Robb @BrianTRobb
The Kings deal for Huerter may not look like much on the surface but would have been tough for Celtics to top it without including an extra first round pick or more talent. Kings future first round pick > Celtics future first round pick. – 1:19 PM
Tim Reynolds @ByTimReynolds
Can confirm the Kevin Huerter to Sacramento trade, as @Adrian Wojnarowski reported, and I have no further comment at this time. – 1:18 PM

Sean Cunningham @SeanCunningham
The Sacramento Kings have agreed to a trade with the Atlanta Hawks to acquire 23-year-old shooter Kevin Huerter in exchange for Moe Harkless, Justin Holiday, and a future first round pick, sources confirm. @Adrian Wojnarowski first to report. “Red Velvet” is a King. – 1:17 PM
James Ham @James_HamNBA
League source confirms the Kings have traded Justin Holiday, Moe Harkless and a future first to Atlanta for Kevin Huerter. @Adrian Wojnarowski first – 1:16 PM

Huerter has already signed a 4-year/$65M deal. In 2022-23 season he will earn $14,508,929. #SacramentoProud1:15 PM
Christos Tsaltas @Tsaltas46
The Kings did a really good move. They will add a consistant two-way guard, like Kevin Huerter, next to Fox, Mitchell and Monk. Their backcourt looks pretty promising for the upcoming season. #Sacramento1:13 PM
Chris Kirschner @ChrisKirschner
Can confirm @Adrian Wojnarowski that the Hawks are trading Kevin Huerter to Sacramento for Justin Holiday, Mo Harkless and a future first-round pick. – 1:12 PM

Atlanta is trading Kevin Huerter to Sacramento for Justin Holiday, Mo Harkless and a future first round pick, sources tell EPSN. – 1:10 PM
Spencer Percy @QCHspencer
If CHA moves away from Miles Bridges, so many different directions come into play. One trade concept I’m mulling:
CHA: Harrison Barnes (1 yr, $18M), Richaun Holmes (3 yrs, $36M), Justin Holiday (1 yr, $6M)
SAC: Plumlee (1 yr, $9M), Oubre (1 yr, $12.6M), Bouknight (3 yrs, $15M) – 1:53 PM
Matt George @MattGeorgeSAC
I still think Justin Holiday can be a valuable role player for the Sacramento Kings, just not as the high-volume shooter starting 2 that he was at the end of last season. – 5:33 PM

More on this storyline

James Ham: League source confirms the details of the pick involved in the Kevin Huerter trade. Kings first-rounder is lottery-protected in 2024, top-12 in 2025, top-10 in 2026 and converts into two seconds if it isn’t conveyed in 2026. -via Twitter @James_HamNBA / July 1, 2022
Bobby Marks: Sacramento has certainly addressed a priority this offseason: Shooting. Keegan Murray on draft night, Malik Monk on day 1 of FA and now Kevin Huerter in a trade. Solid trade for the Kings front office -via Twitter @BobbyMarks42 / July 1, 2022
