Source: Kings trade forward Bjelica to Heat for Harkless


The Kings acquired Delon Wright in a trade with the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday night, but they weren't done dealing.

Sacramento has traded forward Nemanja Bjelica to the Heat for Moe Harkless and Chris Silva, NBC Sports California's James Ham has confirmed.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported the news of the trade.

Bjelica, 32, has long been on the trade market with teams like the Boston Celtics, Philadelphia 76ers and others reportedly showing interest. The 6-foot-11 forward is averaging 7.2 points per game this season while shooting 46.0 percent from the floor and 29.3 percent from 3-point range. Bjelica is a career 38.8 percent shooter from distance.

Harkless and Silva both are on expiring contracts, which should help the Kings as they look to clear cap space next season.
