Ahead of the second round of the 2024 NBA Draft, news broke that the Toronto Raptors and Sacramento Kings had made a trade, with Jalen McDaniels being shipped to California’s capital city.

With the Kings in win-now mode and the Raptors at the beginning of what will likely be an extensive rebuilding process, especially after trading Pascal Siakam to the Indiana Pacers earlier this year, this deal seems to make sense.

As everyone was focusing on the second round of the draft on Thursday, some were surprised by the deal involving the Kings and Raptors, especially McDaniels, who was getting up shots in the gym.

Apparently, one of McDaniels’ friends walked up to the 26-year-old while he was in the gym and told him that he had been traded to Sacramento via NBA Central.

Needless to say, McDaniels was clearly shocked by the news, as it doesn’t seem like he was anticipating getting moved on Thursday.

With so many trades in the NBA these days, player movement in the league is no longer uncommon, especially during the offseason or during the NBA Draft.

However, rarely does the reaction of players getting moved get seen in real life, as it did with McDaniels, who was shocked he would be moving back to the United States all the way to the West Coast.

Fortunately for McDaniels, the Kings will give him the opportunity to play for a team that is in win-now mode, unlike the Raptors, who seem to be getting rid of all their valuable players except star Scottie Barnes.
