Geoff Petrie, Sacramento Kings President of Basketball Operations:
- On Hickson: "It was a chance to acquire a young player that's already proven himself to a pretty decent level in the league and strengthening our roster. There's still a lot of upside there. Some of the players that were just taken in the draft a week ago aren't a whole lot younger than J.J. and he's had three years in the league and been more productive each year. It really falls, I think, mostly under the category of just improving the quality of your roster overall."
- On the nexus of this trade: "We were having conversations with Cleveland prior to the draft and even somewhat during the draft and it just didn't seem to work. But they continued on here. In order to accomplish this trade today, both teams had to waive physicals and reporting in order to get it complete today."
- On the financial implications: "The other thing about this trade - it does not, again, significantly impact our salary cap room going forward at all. So when we get to free agency, we'll still be basically in the same position. We have to go and make other additions to the roster."
- On Casspi: "Omri has had some pretty good stretches himself as a player and we wanted to make sure we could get fair value for him if we ever did move him."
