More on Richaun Holmes Trade?

Jordan Schultz: Richaun Holmes has steadily become the trade target of multiple teams, league sources say. The #Kings’ big man has not only been excellent this season (17/10 last nine games) but he’s made it clear that he wants to re-sign w/the team. Would take a sizable offer to pry him away.
The Kings are open to listening on everyone aside from De'Aaron Fox and Tyrese Haliburton, but it's going to take a lot to pry away Barnes and Richaun Holmes, sources said. Both are in the meat of their primes -- Holmes is 27, Barnes 28 -- and the Kings are telling teams they don't consider themselves that far from being a real playoff team, sources said. They are not in as much of a rush as you might think to deal good, in-their-prime guys for prospects and picks.
Scott Bordow: Suns sent $1 million to Philly for Holmes. Dudley trade opened up salary cap space to make deal possible. Phoenix views Holmes as a center who can run the floor, block shots

Many Raptors counting the days to leave Tampa Bay

Not having the support or revenue of sell-out crowds at Scotiabank Arena in Toronto surely made that decision easier. To little surprise, there are players on the team and people within the organization who have been counting down the days until they can pack their bags, take their families and get out of Tampa on the morning of May 17, per sources. It’s hard to blame them, all things considered.
