Portland will send Caleb Swanigan to Sacramento in exchange for Skal Labissiere, according to ESPN, which cited unidentified sources. 

Labissiere, 22, has spent all three of his NBA seasons with the Kings after he was selected in the first round of the 2016 draft. He averaged 2.8 points and 1.8 rebounds in 8.7 minutes per game this year.
