Huerter was traded to Sacramento in exchange for Justin Holiday, Maurice Harkless and a future first-round pick from Atlanta on Friday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Huerter spent the first four seasons of his career in Atlanta. The Maryland product is set to compete amongst Malik Monk and Davion Mitchell for playing time. Huerter has a shot at starting come opening day of the season, but fantasy expectations shouldn't be too high with the Kings' offense presumably running through De'Aaron Fox and Domantas Sabonis.
Huerter produced four points (1-7 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three rebounds and four assists across 30 minutes during Sunday's 110-86 loss to Miami. While Huerter did post 13 points, five rebounds and four assists in Game 3, he's really struggled to find his offensive rhythm thus far in the series. Huerter is now a combined 6-of-26 from beyond the arc, and he's scored fewer than 10 points in three of four games.
Huerter ended Friday's 113-109 loss to Miami with 15 points (6-11 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, three assists and three steals across 30 minutes. Huerter tied his season high with three steals -- a mark he's reached three times -- and grabbed at least seven rebounds for the sixth time during the campaign. The fourth-year sharpshooter has been inconsistent over the last eight games, registering five 20-point games but finishing with only five points twice.
Huerter provided 21 points (8-13 FG, 5-9 3Pt), two rebounds, four assists, one block and one steal over 31 minutes during Tuesday's 118-108 loss to the Raptors. Huerter had a poor 2-for-10 performance in Saturday's win over the Nets, and he got back on track Tuesday. The game marked his fifth 20-point effort over the past six -- arguably his best stretch of the season. It comes at a time when John Collins (finger) is presumably out for the regular season and Danilo Gallinari (knee) has periodically missed time.
Huerter ended Thursday's 131-107 win over Cleveland with 23 points (7-12 FG, 5-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT), two rebounds, two assists and two steals across 30 minutes. That's now four straight games with at least 20 points for Huerter, who has stepped up down the stretch for the Hawks and helped them secure a spot in the play-in tournament. The fourth-year guard hadn't hit for 20 since late January prior to this surge, but if Atlanta is going to advance to the playoffs, Huerter may need to stay locked in from beyond the arc -- he's drained multiple threes in six straight, making a blistering 55.8 percent (24-for-43) of his long-range attempts.
