Kings Agree to Trade 3 Players to 76ers

Jul 2, 2015 12:50 AM

A person with knowledge of the trade says the Sacramento Kings have agreed to send Nik Stauskas, Jason Thompson and Carl Landry to the Philadelphia 76ers as part of a salary-shedding move to pursue free agents.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Wednesday night because trades can't be completed until July 9. It wasn't immediately clear who the Kings were receiving in return or if draft picks were involved.

Stauskas struggled after being drafted by the Kings eighth overall last year, but it was a difficult season for any rookie as the team fired two coaches and had a front-office shake-up. Thompson just completed his seventh season and was Sacramento's longest-tenured player.

Landry, an eight-year veteran, has battled injuries since coming to Sacramento two years ago.
