The Sacramento Kings are trying to sign Buddy Hield to a contract extension following his breakout season past year, but they are going to have to try a lot harder if they want the star guard to commit to them for the long term.
The reported divide between the two sides is large, although not insurmountable. He has shot 37.5 percent from three-point range in his two seasons with the Kings. But ruffling the feathers of a popular and positive young presence like Hield could scuttle all those good vibes in Sacramento, and a 2020 free-agent crop light on major difference-makers could prompt another team with cap space to make a richer offer-perhaps even the full-freight max-to try to snare one of the league's best up-and-coming shooting guards.

Should they fail to agree on the extension Hield could become a restricted free agent next summer if the Kings extend the $6.48 million offer. He also established a new National Basketball Association record for most 3-pointers through three seasons, hitting a team-record 278 triples last season to push his career total to 602. They have also offered Bogdan Bogdanovic a new deal, and they'll soon be preparing for the extensions of De'Aaron Fox and Marvin Bagley. Hield also has made it known he would like to stay in Sacramento.
Hield then pointed to the fact that Sacramento is not considered a top destination for National Basketball Association free agents, meaning the Kings had better find a way to satisfy him if they want to hold onto a star player.
The price points matter, though, because Vlade Divac and Co. aren't doing these deals in a vacuum. If not, they have to table the discussion until after the season.
