The Kings have reached an agreement in principle to send veteran guard Mike Bibby to the Atlanta Hawks for guards Anthony Johnson and Tyronn Lue and forwards Lorenzen Wright and Shelden Williams, sources told The Bee on Saturday.

"I had some good times here in Sacramento," said Bibby, who became known with the Kings as one of the league's better clutch shot-makers. "Sometimes you need a change and you never know where that might take you. I just prayed and asked for what might be the best for my family and this is what happened, so you can't question it."

Hawks got the better end of the deal, but Kings also open up some cap room and playing time.

Kings aren't going to the playoffs anytime soon, either.

Not a bad deal either way.

Shelden Williams is young and has some potential but the other 3 guys are all aging bench players.

Kings probably could've got a better deal, I think Bibby's trade value went down because of his injury.

that'll get the hawks into the playoffs as the 8th or 7th seed..but they'll get swept by the celtics or pistons.

Lol, with how the East is looking right now, everyone (minus the Heat?) has a chance to make the playoffs. Now with that being said, Hawks have a better chance now to make it.
