Kings targeting point guard, wing in draft
The Sacramento Kings continue to experience change since trading DeMarcus Cousins to New Orleans, and the good news is, they have two top-10 draft picks to help the (ahem) process.
So what are the Kings thinking?
Per the Sacramento Bee:
With two top-10 picks (No. 5 and No. 10) in the June 22 draft, GM Vlade Divac is intent on drafting a point guard and a small forward. As of today, he’s targeting Kentucky’s De’Aaron Fox at No. 5.
But what if the speedy, charismatic point guard is unavailable? What happens if LaVar Ball talks his son out of Los Angeles with his outlandish comments and Lonzo is still on the board?
Fox, Ball, whoever, remains to be seen. All the Kings know is they need help to fit around the likes of Buddy Hield, Willie Cauley-Stein and any other veterans they obtain next season.
Speaking of veterans, yes, the Kings have reportedly looked into the idea of packaging the picks for quality veterans -- but appear more likely to stick with the selections and find more young talent.
