NBA Rumors: Kings One of Many Teams Showing Interest in Tobias Harris

The rumor mill is churning and it's unlikely to stop until the first week of NBA free agency has passed by. Armed with massive amounts of cap space, the Kings are likely to get mentioned in all kinds of potential deals.

According to Shams Charania, the Kings are one of the many NBA teams interested in forward Tobias Harris.

In addition to the 76ers and Clippers, "Brooklyn, Dallas, Denver, Memphis, Minnesota, New Orleans, and Sacramento are expected to also express interest," Charania wrote on Wednesday.

Harris' name has been floated as a potential fit for a while with the Kings, although he'll come at a steep price and would create an issue on the frontline.

More of a stretch four than a small forward, new head coach Luke Walton would have his hands full trying to fit the pieces together, especially if Harrison Barnes returns to the team.

The Kings could fit both Harris and Barnes under the cap and shift prized big man, Marvin Bagley, to the center position. With the team's pace of play, it might work, at least for short bursts during games.

It likely would take a max offer to obtain Harris, which is around four-years at $141 million.

The smooth shooting forward turns 27 on July 15th. He averaged 20 points, 7.9 rebounds, 2.8 assists and shot 39.9 percent from long range during stops with the Clippers and 76ers.

This isn't the first time Harris has been linked to the Kings. Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer listed the Kings as a potential landing spot for the rangy forward back in May.

In addition to Harris, Charania added that the Kings are a potential landing spot for reserve point guard Cory Joseph.

Joseph, 27, spent the last two seasons coming off the bench for the Indiana Pacers. The eight-year vet averaged 6.5 points, 3.9 assists and 3.4 rebounds in 25.2 minutes per game last season.

If Sacramento doesn't pick up a $3.2 million team option on Yogi Ferrell, they might be in the market for a player to eat minutes behind starter De'Aaron Fox.
