NBA Draft 2013: Phoenix Suns, Sacramento Kings Discussing Trade to Swap First-Round Picks

The rumors are never-ending when it comes to this year’s NBA Draft.

As the draft sits now, the Phoenix Suns will pick fifth, and the Sacramento Kings will pick seventh. Sacramento is looking to trade up into the top-five while Phoenix would like to trade down and accumulate draft picks.

Phoenix is in dire need of young bodies. It has been rumored that they would like to pick up multiple late first-round picks in tonight’s draft.

According to Sam Amick, whether or not the deal gets done depends on how the draft develops at the top. Phoenix would love to add Victor Oladipo, but the Orlando Magic have also been linked to the lock-down defender with the second pick.

It is unclear what would have to happen in the picks prior to Phoenix for them to send the pick to Sacramento and what else would be included.
