Looks like the first of many possible dominos has fallen with the Trade Deadline tomorrow.

Yahoo Sports is reporting that the Brooklyn Nets and Sacramento Kings are finalizing a deal that would net the Nets shooting guard Marcus Thornton.

Other pieces confirmed in the trade are the Nets’ Jason Terry and Reggie Evans going to the Kings.

Yahoo is also reporting that no picks or cash will be exchanged in the trade.

Thornton would most likely be used as a scorer off the bench with Paul Pierce and Joe Johnson already starting on the wings.

The trade would also end speculations that the Nets and Cleveland Cavaliers have discussed a similar trade for Jarrett Jack.

Expect the Nets to now focus on front court help as the deadline winds down. Previous rumors have surfaced that the Nets may have interest in Los Angeles Lakers’ forward Jordan Hill.

Terry and Evans have not had the season many expected them to have, so it comes to no surprise that the Nets would dangle these two to teams in an effort to bolster their bench and talent.

A change of scenery could do Thornton some good; he’s averaged just 8.3 points a game for the Kings.

Terry has averaged just 4.5 points on 36.2% shooting. Also his contract comes off the books at the end of the season. It would come to no shock if the Kings were to waive the 14-year veteran.
