Should Sacramento trade for Hedo Turkoglu or Tayshaun Prince?

The Kings are looking for a small forward and Detroit’s Tayshaun Prince could be a viable option.

The Pistons are looking to make some changes and it is believed that either Richard Hamilton or Prince will be dealt.

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: This is more like it.
 
For weeks, reports have tied the rebuilding Sacramento Kings to Hedo Turkoglu, the disgruntled three-man with the Toronto Raptors.
 
Turkoglu had a poor year in Toronto: he arrived out of shape; had little interest in playing basketball; displayed a lack of professionalism; and demanded a trade.
 
The Kings – despite having the Turkish swing for the first five years of his career – are probably hesitant to deal for Turkoglu. His attitude leaves something to be desired. And he has four years and over $40 million remaining on his contract.
 
Prince would be a better fit. The lanky wing has credibility after winning an NBA championship with Detroit and helping the Pistons become a model franchise. And Sacramento’s youngsters will respect Prince’s experience, work ethic, and quiet, statesmanlike approach.
 
Best of all, he’s an affordable mentor. His $12 million per year salary expires at season’s end. 
 
For many reasons, the Kings would be better off with a ‘Prince’.
