Question: So Reggie Theus -- OK! In Petrie we trust, but there is something on the horizon, namely the "Big Ticket." Why haven't the Kings tried to even talk to Minnesota Timberwolves vice president of basketball operations Kevin McHale about acquiring Kevin Garnett in a trade? Better yet, how come the Kings haven't talked to Garnett? We have the pieces to move.

Answer: I haven't heard of specific talks, but you know that every team in the league - the Kings included - have brainstormed about what it would take to land KG. The same goes for Kobe Bryant trade possibilities.
That being said, one thing that's certain with those hypotheticals is that Kevin Martin would have to be involved. When it comes to other teams calling about Kings, Martin wins the popularity contest. And while the Kings love how Martin's game has exploded, they'd have to let him go to land a huge name.
