One problem the Kings had for making the trade was that their young players were better than what the other teams could offer.
Dean couldn't try to hide Simmonds and Jack behind his back while offering up something else. All Waddell was focused on was what Dean had in his hands behind him. Not what he was being offered, which could have helped his team's future.
The Kings were not going to give up chunks of their roster for a rental. So Waddell, not being allowed to get those players, went somewhere else, and got robbed for what he was asking.
Dean held firm. And I will thoroughly enjoy watching Simmonds and Jack play with a crown on their jersey tonight.
