The 2024 NBA trade deadline is only 10 days away, which means the noise surrounding Portland Trail Blazers veterans Jerami Grant, Malcolm Brogdon, and to some extent, Matisse Thybulle will only grow louder.

Brogdon is the most likely to go, although even that idea's been brought into question recently. The right deal could possibly make general manager Joe Cronin part with Thybulle, but the Blazers seem dead set on keeping Grant in Portland.

None of that is stopping the rumor mill from churning and fake trades from appearing, though.

Recent trade proposal sees Blazers deal Jerami Grant, Matisse Thybulle to Sacramento Kings

One pitch from Zach Buckley of Bleacher Report is the largest trade idea yet. As mentioned above, a significant offer for Thybulle could force Cronin's hand, but it would take a godfather offer for him to move Grant.

What could the Sacramento Kings possibly offer Portland for both Thybulle and Grant?

Here's the proposal.
