Watch: Buddy Hield jokingly makes money sign at GM Vlade Divac

Buddy Hield

Buddy Hield wants to get paid, and he’s not really enamored with the Sacramento Kings right now, but he still has a sense of humor about it.

At the Kings’ Fan Fest on Saturday, Hield threw down an alley-oop, then turned to GM Vlade Divac courtside and made the money sign. Both men had smiles on their faces and embraced afterward, so it was pretty clear that, at least in this context, it was all pretty light-hearted.

Despite the fun, there’s definitely a little bit of fire behind Hield’s actions. The 26-year-old broke out and averaged 20.7 points per game last season, and he has made no secret of the fact that he felt insulted by the Kings’ most recent contract offer. He’s set to be a restricted free agent after the season, and it’s clear that the franchise is going to have to get to work to keep him.
