The Sacramento Kings continue to pursue a trade for Josh Smith with the Detroit Pistons.

The Kings are attempting to find a third team to engage in trade talks to help facilitate the deal.

Talks have centered around Jason Thompson and either Derrick Williams or Jason Terry to the Pistons for Smith.

Skeptics question whether the Kings could gamble on trying to fit Smith in alongside DeMarcus Cousins and Rudy Gay. The Kings like the idea of acquiring Smith because it wouldn't make them part with any players in their long-term plans.
