For the Sacramento Kings, the 2012 NBA Draft Lottery was, well, less then enthusiastic. No, they didn’t drop any selection spots as they’d done so many times in the past few seasons, but they didn’t gain any spots either. That said though, there is talent at their fifth selection – maybe they’ll luck out with Thomas Robinson or Micheal Kidd-Gilchrist dropping to them or maybe Harrison Barnes will shock scouts and turn into the pro many expected last season. Hell, maybe the Kings, looking for some veteran talent forgo the draft and send the fifth pick and talent like Tyreke Evans out on a draft day trade. There are plenty of scenarios to wade through, but for now, here is A Royal Pain’s complete 2012 first round NBA Mock Draft.
Visit A Royal Pain in the coming days and weeks for further 2012 draft profiles and draft evaluation as well as updated mock drafts.
