Report: Buddy Hield still upset in Sacramento after Luke Walton benched him, may request trade

Buddy Hield isn't happy in Sacramento and could be close to requesting a trade, according to The Athletic's Shams Charania, Sam Amick and Jason Jones. Hield — a former No. 6 overall draft pick — was pulled from the starting lineup last month and replaced with Bogdan Bogdanovic, a move coach Luke Walton insisted wasn't a punishment but rather an effort to snap a six-game losing streak. The Kings beat the Chicago Bulls that first night, and Hield dropped 21 points off the bench.
