Joseph is a quality backup point guard, but he is not an essential part of the Kings future. Sacramento is unlikely to shop him and he won’t have much value with his inflated contract. The only reasonable trade target in this situation would be a similarly overpaid small forward. It might be a lateral move, but the Kings have struggled to land players like Snell in the past.Snell would be a capable backup for Barnes. He’s a decent defender and is shooting over 40 percent from 3-point range this season. An added advantage here would be a diversification of options in the draft for Sacramento. This year has a guard-heavy lottery and the Kings could find a solid backup point guard in the first round.
