Just how likely is it that the Kings land a star at 4?

[Editor's Note: This is a Reader Submission from RikSmits. Enjoy!] I am one of the - apparently few - Kings fans who does not often get excited about the whole draft process and scrutinizing dozens of prospects. I did in 2018, but I am not here to restart that conversation. I mostly think that it is incredibly difficult to predict the transition from college (or Europe) to the NBA, also taking into account that we, as fans, have access to just a small part of the information. In particular, the mental/psychological/character element is something that we are just guessing about in most cases (w ..read more

Could Jaden Ivey jump into the top three?
The Kings Herald » NBA Draft
by Greg Wissinger

It felt very Kangzy when the Sacramento Kings jumped in the draft lottery, only to end up with the 4th pick in a draft with a clearly defined top three players. But as the predraft process plays out, players rise and fall and the picture of the draft becomes clear, the fourth pick is beginning to look a bit more fortuitous thanks to the rising stock of Jaden Ivey. Following an excellent pro day, as well as deeper dives from draft pundits, Ivey seems to be building a case that this is in fact a four-player draft. I legit really like all four of the top-four players in this 2022 NBA Draft class ..read more
