If both parties here are open to pulling off a sign-and-trade deal this offseason, then this could be the most realistic of the four possible trade packages mentioned on this list. The Chicago Bulls would be sending veteran power forward Thaddeus Young, 6-foot-7 combo guard Tomas Satoransky, and point guard Kris Dunn to the Kings to land Hield and veteran point guard Cory Joseph.

The difficult part about pulling off a sign-and-trade deal here is the fact that Dunn is a restricted free agent this summer. Dunn is in the midst of the final year of his rookie contract, but the way he played this season in a newfound defensive stopper role off the bench made his value skyrocket compared to where it was at last offseason.

Get him at a reasonable price tag, and he could be a great addition to this Kings backcourt rotation that couldn’t seem to figure anything out over the course of the last two years. There is so much talent in the Kings backcourt, but maybe a more refined role player like Dunn could help this group find some direction in the coming years.

Dunn leads the NBA in steal rate this season, and Young isn’t too shabby on both ends of the floor either. Both are also very tradeable contracts if neither was to work out in Sacramento. Sato is a good replacement that the Kings could get since they would need to bring back some depth at the one or the two with the losses of Hield and Joseph.
