Jason Terry close to exit as Kings-Nets three-man trade gathers pace

Published Add your comment

There is just over 24 hours remaining of the NBA trade deadline, and after weeks of discussion with relatively little action to back it up, it seems there may finally be some legitimate deals firming up.

As reported by Adrian Wojnarowski, the Sacramento Kings and Brooklyn Nets are in advanced discussions which would see Kings' guard Marcus Thornton trade to the Nets, with Jason Terry and Reggie Evans heading in the opposite direction.

According to league sources, the structure of the deal is in place but discussions continue regarding future conditional draft picks.

Thornton would move to New York having averaged just over 24 minutes as a starter for the Kings this season.

Terry meanwhile only joined up with the Brooklyn franchise in July 2013, and the 2011 NBA Champion and 14 year league veteran has struggled to make an impact in his 35 appearances this season.

The other name mentioned in the trade is Reggie Evans, with the power forward likely to head to Sacramento as part of the deal.

Both Brooklyn Nets players have 1 year remaining on their deals, whilst Thornton has two (worth $17 million).
