2. Kris Murray
This prospect looks oddly familiar to Sacramento Kings fans and is someone we would all be excited about if drafted by the Kings. Kris Murray, twin brother of Kings breakout rookie Keegan, had a breakout season at the University of Iowa, skyrocketing his draft stock. He averaged 20.2 points per game with 7.2 rebounds, 1.2 blocks, and 1.0 steals.
Kris Murray has become a Kings fan favorite, as almost everyone enjoys the idea of the twin brothers playing together. Murray’s biggest strength is getting to the basket with and without the ball, as 66% of his field goals are at the rim. His offense is not limited to that, though, as he can practically do it all. Murray shot 33.5% from three this season while shooting at a high volume. I would like to see that percentage increase, but he has shown he has the shooting ability.
Murray’s defense is another aspect of his game, as he can guard the one through five. He is an impressive shot blocker and not much gets past him.
Kris Murray is a fantastic fit for the Sacramento Kings.
Not only because he would be playing alongside his brother, but Kris is almost the definition of what the Kings are looking for. He is an NBA-ready player that can score on all levels, rebound, and defend. He runs the break exceptionally, keeping up with the Kings fast-paced offense.
