When the #8 pick in the draft was announced, and the Sacramento Kings’ logo was not in the little white envelope, Kings fans collectively felt a rollercoaster of emotions. The Kings ended up getting the 3rd pick in the draft, and after a swap with Philadelphia, settled in the 5 and 10 spot (via New Orleans).
Going from 8 to 5 brings in a whole new world of prospects. I decided to put out a poll with a list of 4 guys most likely to be available. In all my years of covering the Kings, I have yet to see such a nearly unanimous choice for the pick.
Which of course means De’Aaron Fox will be picked #4.
