Talented Prospects Highlight NBA Draft Early Entrants

Exemplified by their play in the second half of the season, the Kings roster is rich in young talent. With Willie Cauley-Stein, Georgios Papagiannis, Malachi Richardson, Skal Labissiere, and Buddy Hield all playing significant minutes, Kings fans were treated to a display of youth. With the possibility of multiple picks in the Lottery in the upcoming Draft, the roster may add more young pieces to its talent pool.

Hailed as one of the most talented drafts in years, Sacramento has the ability to position itself with an extremely bright future. This draft class is not only rich in talent, but is deep at the point guard and small forward positions—spots where the aforementioned players on the roster do not occupy. The front office can potentially complement the already existing talent, and have young players at every position on the court.

Point Guard
Markelle Fultz
Lonzo Ball
Dennis Smith Jr.
De’Aaron Fox
