Kings Draft

Who are some players that the Sacramento Kings should take? I know the obviously if they get first pick would be Anthony Davis. I would love to see Davis alongside Cousins because I feel that would be sick. If Kings get from 2 down to 6 who should they take? Harrison Barnes could be interesting choice.

I like terrence jones to the

I like terrence jones to the kings probably a bit high but a good fit. Harrison barnes/Jeremy lamb would be nice also.

pg: Isaiah thomas/ jimmer

sg: tyreke/thorton

sf: outlaw/terrence jones

pf: terrence jones/ hassan whiteside

C: cousins

I like how jones can play the 3/4 with demarcus being such a force inside not a real need to a true PF

It's going to depend on draft

It's going to depend on draft position obviously....Davis/MKG if given the chance...other than that probably Barnes/Robinson depending on who is there when we pick....SF is our biggest need so that's what we are really targeting....and how dare you say we should pick Jones...I will literally bash my skull in if we pick Jones......

Well, let me ask you guys

Well, let me ask you guys this scenario .. Suppose the Rockets are convinced that Dragic is going to be their starting PG of the future and are willing to trade Kyle Lowery for the Kings first pick that happens to be 3rd-6th overall (allowing the Rockets to select a big man they covet such as Drummond, T-Rob, etc). Would the Kings fans be willing to do such a trade or are Kings fans sold on Isaiah Thomas as the PG of their future? Just want to hear some opinions

"Davis/MKG if given the chance...other than that probably Barnes/Robinson depending on who is there when we pick"

then add a wing like darius miller or kris joseph.

I think Thomas has proven

I think Thomas has proven enough to at least be given a chance next year. Plus Lowery seems kinda injury/bacteria prone and I don't know if I would give a top 10 pick for him. We have such a glaring hole at SF it is truly astounding

Kings sf

Well the Kings are playing Tyreke at SF right now, and they just signed Terrence Williams. Is SF their biggest hole or is PF their weakest position with Jason Thompson?

Barnes, Drummond, or Lamb

Barnes, Drummond, or Lamb would all work.. MKG would create the problems like Turner has with Iggy.. Evans can play the 3 with Lamb at the 2 and Thomas at the 1..

Drummond would be nice because he is a huge body to go with Cousins and he could be Alonzo Mourning.

Barnes simply because he would be great off of Evans and Thomas.

While Reke is playing SF for

While Reke is playing SF for now he isn't a true SF....although PF is a need I personally don't see any pf except Davis and maybe Drummond in the draft that is going to be worth the high pick that we are likely to get. So might as well draft a true SF while we can.....

I like the idea of Henson

I like the idea of Henson here. This team isn't going to compete for a bit, and as Henson fills out next to Cousins, they could be special.... though I believe they must trade Reke or Thornton.

This is really tough to say

This is really tough to say as the Kings Management has made little to no indication of what kind of team they are building here. It looks like they are just stockpiling talent so if they continue with how they are doing they are probably going with BPA regardless of position. The kings need to sort out if they are building around Cousins or Evans. They also need to get rid of Evans or Thornton as they dont work together at all and neither gives Cousins the touches they need. The kings should go with an unselfish leader like Kidd Gilchrist or Kendall Marshall. I know drafting Marshall would be a reach but he would make sure every one of the Kings scorers got their touches.

I wonder if Cousins and Tyler

I wonder if Cousins and Tyler Zeller could coexist. If so that would be a great twin tower lineup.
Zeller can run the floor, block shots, rebound, and has a nice shooting touch.

That could be a gamble that could really pay off. Size comes at a premium in the league.

Thomas Robinson would be a great fit but he is likely to go number 3.
I thought that Jared Sullinger might be a good fit but he struggled against Kansas and the Kings
might need more of an athlete down low.

Rolling the dice with Perry Jones might work if they can't move up in the draft lottery. He can score and is a great
athlete. You can put him at the 3 with Evans at the 2 and Thornton as a sixth man. Or they can go small with Jones
at the 4. They have a lot of talent with Cousins, Evans, and Thornton and if they added one more really talented player then they could be
really dangerous.

I think it all comes down to

I think it all comes down to what they want to do with Tyreke Evans. Demarcus Cousins is blatantly the franchise player on that team, and they should look to build around him. The best player available when the Kings are up to draft is most likely going to be a SG in Beal, Lamb, and possibly Barnes if he falls, and they might want to consider taking one of those who are available.

None of the big man in this draft seem to compliment Cousins, and the Kings could really use an upgrade on the perimeter. If I was them I'de trade Tyreke for a pick or something, draft Lamb/Beal/Barnes, and then try to build around the inside outside presense of Cousins and the pick.

Also for everyone saying Robinson would be a good pick, they have already tried out a plethora of athleti hustle players at the 4 spot, and it really hasn't worked out. They might be warry of taking another with the 6th pick

I think they should take Jeremy Lamb if he falls and trade Tyreke for a shot-blocker.

well they are strong at SF

well they are strong at SF for now with Williams playing great and Evans out of position but they should try to get Kidd Gilchrist and get rid of that midget

Evans for a top young 1 makes

Evans for a top young 1 makes almost too much sense not to pursue. Check Boston for Rondo, Philly for Jrue and Iggy, Denver for a Ty Lawson centered package, Houston for Lowry plus, and so on. They can add the shooting, defense and leadership they need for Reke before his value further erodes!

@PulseGlazer I like what you

@PulseGlazer

I like what you are going with but i think you are slightly overvaluing Evans. The 76ers wont be trading away their two best players for Tyreke. Also their main reason to move Iguodala is to create space for Turner and Tyreke just comes in and takes his spot. Kings should definately try and trade Evans for Lowry and Courtney Lee straight up that trade would benefit both teams and the kings finally get a true point guard.

Turner could play the 3 and

Turner could play the 3 and Tyreke the 2. That leaves Lou at the 1, however, which is far from ideal. Lee is a free agent, unfortunately.

Interesting ideas in

Interesting ideas in here....I just don't see the Kings trading Reke just yet....he is still too young and talented to just trade away unless we get a darn good deal

With Thornton and Evans you

With Thornton and Evans you could argue that SG and SF look fairly solid especially with Williams and Salmons to back them up and Garcia still under contract. Thomas has done well at PG and with Jimmer also there, I don't see a PG high enough in the draft to be better than either of those two. Jason Thompson is out of contract this summer so if he moves on then there is a hole in the frontcourt to maybe take a PF.

Or they could maybe resign Thompson and take an SF/PF combo guy who could see minutes around Thompson and Thornton/Evans also playing as a stretch PF if required. The Kings look like they are becoming a run and gun team and with DMC looking more and more a very down low player, they could maybe hae an undersized guy at PF if they don't want to create a twin towers type front court.

Moultrie would seem to be a nice fit but his comparision on this site is Jason Thompson so unless he would clearly be the better player then would you draft him if you resign Thompson. Harrison Barnes seems to be a great fit on most teams so again he'd be a solid choice here and would be a good locker room presence.

Perry Jones looks interesting as he is an SF/PF, if they could trade down and maybe ship a contract lets say Garcia to take him then that could be a decent move. If Sullinger could exist alongside DMC then you'd have a huge frontcourt.

I'll throw in Myers Leonard as someone different, he is a good passer and runs the court well so for an uptempo side he'd be a nice fit and alongside DMC you'd have two big men who were both good passers. Also Leonard plays a more perimeter based role so he'd compliment Cousins on both offence and defence and make for some difficult match ups.

The team has too much scoring

The team has too much scoring and not enough shooting/defenders. It isn't fantasy basketball and I just don't see Reke working with Thornton long term when the team's main offensive goal is to feed Cousins and both are subpar defenders.

Another thing that will do

Another thing that will do the Kings well is just maturity...I'll be honest if the Kings don't get the #1 I think they should look into getting Drummond....Drummond's stock has fallen quite a lot from the beginning of the year and I think he would fit well with Cousins....Drummond can rebound, block shots, and get put backs but he won't be relied on to run the offense through....don't know why this thought just hit me but the more I think about it the more I like it...or trade the pick and a young player for a proven veteran...the more I think about it the more my mind keeps changing on which direction the Kings should go

This is a big draft for the

This is a big draft for the King's future... if they get the right guy, they could start to come together. if they dont, I have a feeling the Reke/DMC era is going to continue to finish with lottery seasons.
