25. Kings Draft Peja Stojakovic: The 1996 NBA draft was filled with tremendous talent, and although the Kings didn’t get a superstar like Kobe Bryant or Steve Nash they did alright. The Kings had the 14th overall pick, and decided to use the pick on Peja Stojakovic from Yugoslavia.
The pick showed to be a smart investment, as Stojakovic became the best sharpshooter the Kings still to this day has had. In his career with Sacramento, Peja averaged 18.3 points a game while shooting 46.1% from the floor, 39.8% from beyond the arc.
Peja filled the heads of Kings fans with many memories with his shooting talents whether it was winning the three point contest twice, being a playmaker on the court, or making clutch shots when his team needed it the most. Peja is considered a Kings legend, and will remain to be forever.
