When it comes to the Kings and Thursday's NBA trade deadline, all eyes are on versatile wing Bogdan Bogdanovic. 

Sacramento has a big decision to make with Bogdanovic. The 27-year-old can become a restricted free agent this upcoming offseason and could come with a hefty price tag. He also has garnered plenty of interest around the league, and could bring a nice return back to the Kings. 

If it was up to him, Bogi would stay in Sacramento

"Obviously, I would like to stay," Bogdanovic told NBC Sports California on Monday night. "I'm settled here. I have a house, my sister's in college, so it's easier."

But Bogdanovic apparently isn't the only King who is being monitored prior to Thursday's noon PT deadline. ESPN's Zach Lowe reported Monday that a few teams "have poked around" on Kings big man Harry Giles

Giles, 21, is averaging 5.0 points and 2.8 rebounds over just 11.3 minutes per games this season. Giles also has only played in 24 games this season, his first year under coach Luke Walton. 

The talented young big man missed the first nine games of the season with left knee soreness. He also has undergone three surgeries on his knees, including ACL tears in both knees as a prep athlete.

In a bit of a surprising move, the Kings declined to pick up Harry Giles' fourth-season option. Instead of paying him $4 million next season, Giles will become a free agent this offseason.

Giles is full of talent and still is only 21 years old. It might be time for a change of scenery, though.
