3. Sacramento Kings

Sacramento showed some interest in acquiring Siakam, but the Raptors forward reportedly wants no part of the Kings. Grant would be a solid plan B.

The Blazers' forward would come at a cheaper price. Sacramento is unwilling to include Keegan Murray in any deal; that might preclude them from landing someone like Siakam, but it wouldn't stop them from acquiring Grant.

In fact, plugging the 29-year-old into the starting lineup alongside Murray would give head coach Mike Brown another scorer and spot-up shooter capable of defending multiple positions. Grant would become 1 of 5 Kings currently scoring 15 or more points per game.

A quartet of De'Aaron Fox, Murray, Donantas Sabonis and Grant would be prolific on offense and a little more passable on defense than one that includes Harrison Barnes, Kevin Huerter or Malik Monk.
