According to ESPN, the Sacramento Kings agreed on Friday to acquire Atlanta Hawks guard Kevin Huerter in exchange for a 2024 protected first-round selection and two players.
According to sources, the Kings are trading Huerter for Justin Holiday, Mo Harkless, and a top-14 protected first-round selection in 2024. According to reports, the choice may become a top-12 protected pick in 2025 or a top-10 protected pick in 2026.
The Kings have added young wings through the draught, free agency, and now trades, landing Huerter, free agent Malik Monk, and selecting Keegan Murray with the fourth overall pick.
Huerter and Monk will be 24 years old next season and will be in the same era as the franchise’s two finest players, Domantas Sabonis and De’Aaron Fox.
After trading three future first-round selections to acquire Spurs All-Star guard Dejounte Murray, the Hawks have begun to rebuild their draught stock.
Last season, Huerter averaged nearly 12 points, three rebounds, and two assists in 74 games for the Hawks, 59 of which he started.
Holiday appeared in 25 games for the Kings this season after being acquired in the Sabonis trade in February.
Last season, Harkless averaged just over four points per game in 47 games for the Kings.
