Not be ruled out in the coming days, Russia will have a new representative in the NBA – a contract with the club, “Sacramento Kings” may sign a defender of our team Dmitry Kulagin. But whether or not 22-year-old player to rush over the ocean? And whether it is possible to gain a foothold in the strongest basketball league in the world European, not selected in the NBA Draft?
(Said Kulagin:) – NBA – that’s my goal, something for which I play basketball, and I am sure that sooner or later there is bound to find myself – said the Russian, who spoke last season for “Triumph”. – At the moment, the agents negotiate with “Sacramento” My role in the team. And for me, fundamentally, what will be the final bid “Kings”. If I would be guaranteed playing time, I will agree. Go well in the NBA polishing bench not see the point. I do not just want to get there, I want to play there. Not possible to better prepare will have to stay in Europe for another for some time.
Sources: Clippers Prepared to Offer Tobias Harris, 12th or 13th Pick for Kawhi Leonard
It’s also unclear if the Spurs would be willing to trade [Kawhi] Leonard to the Lakers or any other team. If they are, other teams might have more significant assets to offer, especially given that the Lakers do not have a lottery pick this year. They will select 25th in next week’s draft, a pick they got in a trade with Cleveland.
The Clippers have more to offer than the Lakers. They would be willing to create a package with forward Tobias Harris and the 12th or 13th pick in this year’s draft, according to a source not authorized to speak publicly.
