The trade market surrounding Kings center Dewayne Dedmon added another twist prior to Sunday’s contest against the Nuggets. Following speculation tied to his availability, the 30-year-old veteran told The Sacramento Bee that he would like to be traded.

According to Yahoo Sports’ Chris Haynes, the NBA will look into Dedmon’s comments.

Publicly requesting a trade, whether by a player or his representatives, is a violation under the terms of the collective bargaining agreement.

Last season, demands made by Anthony Davis’ representatives resulted in a $50,000 fine.

Dedmon, who is in the first year of his three-year deal with the Kings, has played sparingly in the month of December.
