Story posting now: League sources tell @ZachLowe_NBA and me that the Kings have received permission to speak to former Sixers GM Sam Hinkie.

Well it looks like the Sacramento Kings are going full rebuild and there is no one in basketball better at the rebuild than former Philadelphia 76ers General Manager, Sam Hinkie. The process is the best experiment in NBA history.
The problem here is that the Kings already have Vlade Divac on the payroll making roster decisions like trading DeMarcus Cousins for the Gawd, Buddy Hield. After making such a great trade, I’m shocked that the Kings would look to replace him or hire someone above him. I mean, there are 29 other teams out there probably begging for Buddy Hield right now.
I want/need Sam Hinkie back in the NBA making trades that seem stupid but in actuality end up making the Kings look like geniuses. Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons are going to lead the 76ers to an NBA championship sooner than later. You heard it here first.
Thanks for reading. Tweet to @TheLesterLee if you think Sam Hinkie could turn around the Sacramento Kings. Also, go ahead and throw Deadseriousness a Like on Facebook so that I can keep the lights on around here at HQ.
