NBA Twitter reacts to blockbuster Kings-Pacers Haliburton trade


The Kings made a massive splash Tuesday afternoon that sent shockwaves throughout the league. 

With the Feb. 10 NBA trade deadline just two days away, Sacramento completed a blockbuster trade with the Indiana Pacers, sending second-year guard Tyrese Haliburton, guard Buddy Hield and veteran forward Tristan Thompson to Indiana in exchange for big man Domantas Sabonis, wings Jeremy Lamb and Justin Holiday, and a 2023 second-round pick. 

The Kings made the move official Tuesday night.

The trade garnered mixed reviews amongst the Kings fanbase and NBA Twitter.

After the Kings selected Haliburton with the No. 12 pick in the 2020 NBA Draft, many believed that Sacramento struck gold, drafting a cornerstone player with star potential who would help build a strong foundation alongside guard De'Aaron Fox and rookie point guard Davion Mitchell, who was drafted one year later.

Haliburton quickly became a fan-favorite in Sacramento and certainly will be missed amongst the fanbase, regardless of the exciting talent coming over in the trade with Indiana.
