Depending on who you listen to, the Sacramento Kings “like” just about everybody in the 2-7 pick range so it shouldn’t come as much of a shock that ESPN’s Chad Ford is reporting that the Kings have some interest in Weber State’s Damian Lillard.
Lillard, who’s stock has continued to rise in recent weeks carries along the “best point guard” in the draft stigma with him and with only Isaiah Thomas on the roster, adding depth to their point rotation wouldn’t exactly be the worst move for the Kings:
Any chance a Lamb or Lillard shoots up into the top 5?
Outside chance for both. Cavs like Lamb. I hear the Kings like Lillard … but unlikely for both. I think they’re draft range starts at No. 6 unless a team trades up ahead of that.
Ford also mentions that while the Kings do like Lillard, Thomas Robinson or Michael Kidd-Gilchrist is the pick if either slip:
What do the Kings do if Barnes, MKG, and Robinson are all off the board?
Andre Drummond and John Henson are both in the mix as is Lillard. But MKG or Robinson would go ahead of them.
