Kings trade Skal to Blazers for Caleb Swanigan

Grade the Trade Kings get Harrison Barnes from Mavs for Justin Jackson and Zach Randolph

The Portland Trail Blazers made another deal ahead of the National Basketball Association trade deadline on Thursday, acquiring forward Skal Labissiere from the Sacramento Kings in exchange for forward Caleb Swanigan. The Mavericks continue to reshape their roster after moving DeAndre Jordan, Dennis Smith Jr, Wes Matthews, and draft picks to the New York Knicks last week for Kristaps Porzingis.

The Kings later confirmed the deal.

Bucks’ Giannis wants Curry, Middleton in All-Star draft
The All-Star weekend is just over a week away, scheduled to get underway on February 15 in Charlotte, North Carolina. I think it's going to be random.

Labissiere, the 28th pick of the 2016 National Basketball Association draft, holds career averages of 8.0 points, 4.5 rebounds and 1.0 assists in three National Basketball Association seasons but has fallen out of the rotation in Sacramento. The Haitian-born center/power forward is a tireless worker, but his days were numbered when Sacramento added Marvin Bagley III on draft night and Nemanja Bjelica late in free agency. At 6-foot-9, 250 pounds, he is a big body that can give Sacramento a different look against some of the league's stronger post players. He averaged 2.8 points and 1.8 rebounds in 8.7 minutes per game this year.

The 37-year-old Randolph never played for the Kings this season, as they prioritized developing their young frontcourt.
