The Kings had a logjam in their backcourt with Isaiah Thomas, Greivous Vasquez, Ben McLemore, Marcus Thornton, and John Salmons. Then they traded Vasquez and Salmons Sunday in the Rudy Gay trade, but after acquiring Derrick Williams earlier this month, now they're looking at a logjam down low. So the Kings have decided to move another power forward on their roster.
