1. Naz Reid

Right now, Sacramento Kings fans are bigger Naz Reid supporters than Timberwolves fans are. Reid is becoming a Kings fan favorite just by the thought of him playing here. Naz Reid has been limited on the Timberwolves team, playing behind Karl Anthony-Towns and Rudy Gobert. Reid, while only playing 18.4 minutes per game this season, has shown he is one of the most skilled big men in the NBA.

Reid is not only extremely skilled, but he brings energy every night. He is 23 years old with a high motor, making him a perfect fit with this young Kings squad looking to improve. Naz Reid can handle the ball at an elite level for his size, 6’9″ with a 7’3″ wingspan while being able to create off that dribble as well.

Coming off a career-best season, Reid averaged 11.5 points, 4.9 rebounds, 0.8 blocks, and 0.6 steals per game, shooting 53.7% from the field and 34.6% from three. Reid is a fantastic cheap, young option for this Kings team that fills some holes we saw this past season.

I have seen some people question whether Reid and Sabonis can start alongside each other, and my quick answer to this question is yes, they absolutely can. I would love to see Reid be an aggressive Center next to Sabonis while being able to stretch the floor on offense and hold down the paint on defense.

Naz Reid is my favorite option, similar to many Kings fans out there, but I would be extremely excited if the Kings signed any four of these guys this off-season.
