Kings [2]The Sacramento Kings have been in a perpetual state of rebuilding for almost a decade now, and it appears they’re ready to blow up things once again.

According to NBA.com, the team is pushing hard for trades, specifically shopping their veterans for prospects and picks.

The Kings are aggressively pursuing trade possibilities in hopes of accelerating the rebuilding process, NBA.com has learned, with one executive saying the team is looking to swap veterans for prospects and picks.

While it is believed some conversations have advanced beyond preliminary talks, it is not immediately clear whether any deals are imminent. One league source rated Sacramento’s interest level in making a move soon as “very high,” and said the new front office led by owner Vivek Ranadive and general manager Pete D’Alessandro has had discussions with several clubs in hopes of generating activity long before the Feb. 20 trade deadline.

The Kings have gotten off to a disappointing start, dropping to 3-7 after losing five straight.
