Buddy Hield has made it crystal clear. He wants to get paid. He's set his value and he doesn't want to budge. The Kings appear to have set their limits and don't want to budge either.

The shooting guard's contract situation has added a bit of tension to what was supposed to be an exciting Kings season.

But despite the gap in salary numbers, Hield and general manager Vlade Divac have been all smiles when the cameras are rolling. The latest moment between the two came during Kings Fan Fest at Golden 1 Center on Saturday.

During a light scrimmage, Hield threw down a dunk off a backboard pass from point guard De'Aaron Fox. Hield then turned to Divac, who was sitting courtside and made a money gesture with his hands.

A few moments later, the two were embracing and laughing about the whole situation.

A day earlier, Hield and Divac were seen talking cordially after Kings practice.

All of this started last week when Hield aired his grievances with the media following a Kings preseason game. Hield reportedly is looking for a four-year contract worth $110 million, while the Kings would prefer to give him around $90 million.

The two sides have until Monday to work out a contract extension. If they don't, the 26-year-old would become a restricted free agent next summer, assuming the Kings make the $6.5 million qualifying offer to him.

The comments from Hield to the media make it sound like there's bad blood between the two sides.

But based on the video coming out of Sacramento the last two days, things might not be as bad as we think.
