Every Sacramento Kings trade deadline move ever

The Kings franchise has been around for a long time. The organization came into the BAA in 1948 as the Rochester Royals and held that title for nine years before the franchise became the Cincinnati Royals in 1957.

For 15 years, the Cincinnati Royals were the name of the franchise. Then, in 1972, the organization changed to the Kansas City-Omaha Kings. However, the name was only in the works for three years, as the franchise became the Kansas City Kings in 1975.

It wasn’t until 1985 that the Kings moved to Sacramento and became the Sacramento Kings. The franchise has an overall regular-season record of 2,590-3,089.
