Skal Labissiere has had an up and down season for probably the worst team in the NBA at the moment.

The Sacramento Kings made moves in the offseason to add veteran players to mix in with their young talent. To say those moves have not panned out is an understatement.

The biggest problem is that the young talent has not gotten the kind of minutes that they need to develop. Skal has been one of those players negatively effected and now the Kings are reportedly shopping the young big man around in order to trade George Hill.

Everything is outlined at ESPN:

Sacramento has to clear a roster spot to take on one or two additional players in a trade with Cleveland and has been discussing deals for the Kings’ young forwards Malachi Richardson and Skal Labissiere, league sources said.

Labissiere is averaging the same stats in many ways that he put up last season. This is unfortunate because of the potential that Skal showed last season. He shined on many occasions, but he has not been given a chance to do that this season.

Skal is a nice young player. For any fans of Zach Lowe’s podcast, The Lowe Post, his guest today was Brian Windhorst. Windhorst mentioned that the Cavaliers should be attempting to get Skal Labissiere themselves with some excitement.

While Labissiere’s time in Sacramento may be over soon, he has a bright future in the NBA. He is a nicely skilled big man that has a place in today’s NBA.
