With the Sacramento Kings selecting Justin James with the 40th pick, should Vlade Divac have chosen someone else? Here are five players who I think they should have selected instead.

The NBA Draft is over and the Sacramento Kings have made their selections. With the purple and white having the 40th, 55th (form trade), and 60th picks in the draft, they were able to add three guys to their family.

For the Kings, this draft was important. For a team that is striving to break their notorious playoff drought next year, the Kings need to add more good talent to their roster through both the draft and free agency.

So when the Kings used their first draft pick on Justin James from the University of Wyoming, questions started to rise.

With the selection of James, the Kings add more depth to the shooting guard position. During his time with the Wyoming Cowboys, he was a bonafide scorer as he averaged 22 points a game in his final year. James also was able to show promise in moving without the ball in his hands on offense and was a terrific rebounder for his position as he averaged almost nine rebounds in his final season.

Even though there is promise that Justin James can be an asset for the Kings, I did think there were a few guys that the Kings should have drafted instead.

So with that being said, enjoy this slideshow which will showcase five players that I thought the Kings should have selected at #40 over Justin James.
