According to the report, the Kings would send Darren Collison, Jason Thompson and Derrick Williams to the Nets for Deron Williams. The hangup is the Kings want to also acquire Mason Plumlee in the deal, but the Nets are reluctant to part with the emerging forward.
Multiple league sources said such a deal falls in line with the front office looking to make splashy deals designed to bring fans back to the arena by enticing them with a fun style of play.
The Kings missed on a chance to trade for Rajon Rondo, who they coveted for some time, when Boston dealt the point guard to Dallas for a combination of players and draft picks.
The Kings have tried to trade Thompson for some time. Derrick Williams is in the last year of his contract and not part of the team’s long-term plans.

The guard set the franchise record for consecutive free throws at 49. Korver set the mark with four free throws in the final seconds of a 104-97 win at the Rockets Saturday night. He broke the mark of 47 set by Tom McMillen in 1978-79. The streak of 49 straight is also a personal best for Korver.

Rockets held an $8.374m Traded Player Exception from the Jeremy Lin trade and were able to absorb Brewer's $4.702m contract along with Turiaf's $1.5 million deal, while only sending out Daniel's $816,000 salary. Wolves will generate a Traded Player Exception for themselves worth roughly $5.38 million.
The Rockets are believed to be talking to additional teams trying to find a landing spot for Turiaf's contract. Turiaf is out for the year due to hip surgery.

Williams left the Nets’ 95-91 loss with a strained right calf, an injury that has him ticketed for an MRI exam to check its severity and find out whether or he’ll be able to take the floor Sunday against the Pistons at Barclays Center.
“No, not yet,” Williams said after the game when asked if he knew the severity. “I’m going to get an MRI [Saturday], but the doctor said it wasn’t too bad.”
