NBA Trade Rumors: Kings still interested in Hawks' Dennis Schröder?

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

ESPN.com's Chad Ford reports that the Sacramento Kings are still interested in Atlanta Hawks point guard Dennis Schröder.

ESPN.com's Chad Ford released his latest NBA mock draft on Tuesday and mentioned that the Sacramento Kings are still interested in Atlanta Hawks point guard Dennis Schröder. Ford reports that the Kings showed some interest in Minnesota's Kevin Love but have lowered their sights to guys like Schröder and MIlwaukee's Brandon Knight.

They've shown interest in Minnesota's Kevin Love, but they have also lowered their sights for players like Atlanta's Dennis Schroeder, and I'm told they also like Milwaukee's Brandon Knight.

Ford projects Oklahoma State guard Marcus Smart to the Kings at No. 8 and if that plays out then it would most likely solve their need for a guard. We first heard of the Kings' interest in Schröder around the lottery. Sacramento was one of the teams that showed a lot of interest in Schröder prior to the 2013 Draft.

The No. 8 pick would most likely be in play for the Hawks if they were interested in parting with Schröder. If Atlanta targets someone in the Top 10 like an Aaron Gordon or a Dario Saric then this is potential way for them to move up.

The Hawks apparently still value Schröder but with Jeff Teague under contract for three more seasons, Lou Williams still on the roster and Shelvin Mack a restricted free agent he could be deemed expendable.

Of course it is always wise to take rumors at this time of the year with a grain of salt. There will be plenty of stuff flying around between now and the draft but this is something that is worth paying attention to come draft night.
