G Kyle Guy – A Royal Prospect Breakdown 

With the final pick in the draft, a team should just be looking for somebody with at least a sliver of potential to stick in the NBA. Kyle Guy fits that bill.

Guy is a plus-shooter, hitting 42% of his three’s last season, and is decent in the paint. His three-point shot alone could get him a nice NBA career as a specialist though, and the Kings can’t ask for much more at pick 60.

He’s also got a pretty high basketball IQ, and is coming off a championship season with Virginia. Not too bad for Mr. Irrelevant.

C Tacko Fall – A Royal Prospect Breakdown 

Everything I said before applies to Tacko Fall, but he’s got the fan-favorite potential. Even if he never sticks in the NBA. At 7’-6” tall, to say Tacko has height is an understatement.

He’s (obviously) a good rebounder and shot blocker, but just about everything else leaves something to be desired. Well, everything but his field goal percentage, which was at 76% his final season in college.

He won’t be a 20-plus minute per game player, but he could be effective — or at least entertaining — for five to 10 minutes a game. Again, with pick 60, there’s no such thing as a reach.

Sorry, I had to do it.

G Aubrey Dawkins – A Royal Prospect Breakdown 

Aubrey Dawkins is another UCF product, and he’s certainly a long-shot, but he could be a survivable NBA role player in the right circumstance.

Next. Kings: The ultimate offseason to-do list. dark

Dawkins is a big guard, and the Kings could desperately use somebody like him off the bench. He averaged 23 points and five rebounds in the NCAA Tournament, and he’s shown an ability to be a spark plug. That’s about all you can hope to get with Dawkins though, as he’s still incredibly raw and could benefit from a couple of seasons in the G-League, regardless of if he’s draft by Sacramento or not.
