Tyrese Haliburton: And…about coming off the bench. I’m not tripping off that. At the end of the day, I’m a basketball player. I’m not just saying this because it’s a media answer. Like, (veteran Kings guard) Buddy (Hield) yelled at me yesterday because I told him this and he was like, ‘Oh, don’t give me the media answer.’ But it’s the truth. I’m a basketball player at the end of the day, so I’m coming out here to compete every night. If you put me off the bench or start me or however many minutes, I’m going to value those minutes and compete. It is what it is. So Buddy asked you what you felt and thought you were bullshitting him? Tyrese Haliburton: Yeah, yeah, exactly. Obviously I have aspirations to start and be a star and be a superstar, (and) I know that that can come. I’ve just got to go about my days the right way.
Howard Beck on Kings: Ownership there, Vivek Ranadive has been a meddler in the past, but everything I’ve been told is that this new front office has full autonomy to do whatever they need to do. If that’s trade, some of these players like Harrison Barnes and Buddy Hield and start to retool around Fox and Haliburton, they’ve got the freedom to do that.
Storyline: Buddy Hield Trade?
Harrison Barnes and Buddy Hield are among the top names to watch as the trade deadline approaches. But… Howard Beck of Sports Illustrated on Locked on Kings: I talked to a couple people just in the last couple hours just to get a feel for these guys and what people around the league think may happen. One of the things I heard was that essentially they’re only going to trade Barnes and Hield if they’re blown away by an offer. Not because they overvalue them, but because Vivek Ranadive wants to be competitive. He doesn’t want to tank.
