The Sacramento Kings have a "very high" level of interest in quickly making a trade, according to a source. It is believed that some conversations have advanced beyond the preliminary stage.

The Kings have a 3-7 record and have several veterans that could be attractive to playoff contenders.

John Salmons, Marcus Thornton and Patrick Patterson have all lost their starting jobs.

The Kings are looking for young players or draft picks to build around DeMarcus Cousins, Ben McLemore and their own pick.

Jimmer Fredette is also widely known as an available player via trade.
