The Kings agreed on Wednesday to a trade that sends forward John Salmons and center Brad Miller to the Chicago Bulls in exchange for forwards Drew Gooden and Andres Nocioni, according to league sources that spoke with David Aldridge.

The deal will reduce Sacramento's obligations next season, saving the Kings millions on the salary cap and keeping them well under any potential luxury tax payments. Gooden, making $7.15 million this season, will likely come off the team's cap after this year, and now, the team is free of the $5.4 million due to Salmons in 2009 and the $12 million due to Miller in '09.

Kings get the better deal....

Gooden and Andres are better players, plus there is the whole salary situation which is improved.

The Kings will actually be a tougher match up now.

A lot of tight races in the West, they can break some hearts down the stretch...

This is all about salary dump for the Kings. They are hemorrhaging money right now.
Gooden>> Lamar Odom. Mo Williams>> Ray Allen>> Gasol. Nene= Gasol.

Very good trade for the Bulls.

They traded a horrible contract and expiring contract for 2 players who can help them right now. Miller has an expiring contract for next year and Salmons makes around the MLE. They just need to trade Hinrich for an expiring contract and young player(s).

I hope Salmons still is a option to score. He's on my fantasy team!

Nothing but a money move.

In no world does this make the Kings suddenly tougher.

They get the same players in return they gave up but now with smaller and/or expiring salaries.

All freeing money up for the move to Vegas. Once the Sacramento public turns down the new arena deal again, they'll pull up stakes, blame it on the small market issue and move the team to Thomas & Mack while they build an arena attached to the Palms.
