Last June, with the fifth pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, the Sacramento Kings selected Kansas forward Thomas Robinson. Despite the fact that T-Rob can be a bit of a liability of the offensive side of the court, it was widely believed that he and DeMarcus Cousins would anchor the Kings' frontcourt for many years to come. So much for that.
According to Yahoo! Sports, the Kings have already given up on Robinson—who was averaging just 4.8 points and 4.7 rebounds per game so far this season—and traded him to the Houston Rockets along with Francisco Garcia and Tyler Honeycutt in exchange for Patrick Patterson, Toney Douglas, and Cole Aldrich.
Confused? Us, too. How do you give up on a guy with this much potential that quickly? And, how do you do it in exchange for three role players? Seems crazy to us. Then again, the Kings are slated to move to Seattle soon. So, maybe this is just their way of making their breakup with Sac-Town a little bit easier on the fans.
