13. Isaiah Stewart – PF – Washington
Isaiah Stewart is another big man prospect who would likely be a project if the Kings were to draft him. Like Achiwua, he is big and athletic with good mobility and speed. He has a high motor and is able to bang in the post with the big boys, both of which would be attractive to the Kings as well as their fan base. This would be especially true if Harry Giles were to leave Sacramento, given that he was a big part of the heart and intensity of the Kings for the last couple of seasons.
Stewart plays solid defense and is a good rebounder on both ends of the floor. But he has very little ability to create and would almost certainly need some G-League time to hone his skills to be able to play at the next level.
14. Aaron Nesmith – SF – Vanderbilt
Aaron Nesmith is another 3-and-D prospect, which is something we are obviously looking to add to the current Kings roster. His prowess at both is not as apparent as it is for Vassell and Bey, but he would be a good security blanket if all of the other options for Sacramento fall through.
One thing that the Kings do have that other teams don’t is a plethora of picks in the second round. The Kings currently have three, and could use them to move up or include in a trade for a veteran. But the fact of the matter is that one of the players that are near the bottom of our list could win up dropping in to the second round, in which case the Kings would have another shot at them.
