Sources: Kings acquire Huerter for 2 players, pick

NBA

The Sacramento Kings reached a deal to acquire Atlanta Hawks guard Kevin Huerter for a 2024 protected first-round pick and two players on Friday, sources told ESPN.

The Kings are sending Justin Holiday, Mo Harkless and a top-14 protected first-round pick in 2024 for Huerter, sources said.

The Kings have upgraded with young wings in the draft, free agency and now trades, landing Huerter, free agent Malik Monk and drafting Keegan Murray with the No. 4 pick in the draft.

Huerter and Monk will both be 24 next season, and fit into the timeline with the franchise’s two best players, Domantas Sabonis and De’Aaron Fox.

The Hawks start to replenish their draft stock after sending three future first-round picks in the deal to land Spurs All-Star guard Dejounte Murray.

Huerter averaged over 12 points, three rebounds and two assists in 74 games for the Hawks last season, 59 of them starts.

Holiday played in 25 games for the Kings this past season after landing in Sacramento as part of the Sabonis trade in February.

Harkless averaged just over four points in 47 appearances with the Kings last season.
