Charania also reports, citing sources, that point guard and shooting guard Jrue Holiday will be joining the Bucks.

Sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski the Kings were sending Bogdanovic and Justin James to the Bucks in a sign-and-trade deal for Donte DiVincenzo, Ersan Ilyasova and D.J. The 28-year-old is a free agent, so he'd be acquired via a sign-and-trade deal. He appeared in 36 games for Sacramento last season, but received limited minutes.

New Orleans, meanwhile, adds to their pick war chest that includes the Lakers' 2021 reverse lottery-protected pick (8-30) that becomes unprotected in 2022, the right to a 2023 Lakers first-round pick swap, and either a swap in 2024 or 2025 for another first-rounder. The 6-4 shooting guard averaged 9.2 points, 4.8 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.3 steals in 23 minutes per game for the Bucks last season, his second in the National Basketball Association.

Holiday is set to be paid $25.4 million for the 2020-21 season and holds a player option for $26.3 million for the following year.

NBC Sports Philadelphia's John Clark had reported earlier Monday night that the Sixers were interested in trying to acquire Holiday. Justin James, a 6-7 guard entering his second National Basketball Association season, averaged 2.5 points in 36 games for the Kings last season.

Hill, 34, led the National Basketball Association with a 46 percent success rate from 3-point range last season, hitting 81 of 176 attempts.
