Draft Day Open Thread

It's here!
By | 92 Comments | Jun 26, 2024

Today is Draft Day. The first round of the NBA Draft kicks off at 5 PM PT. This year the draft has been split into two days, so the second round will be held tomorrow afternoon. Draft Day usually involves a flurry of trades and rumors, and we’ve already kicked off with a couple big moves last night.

We will use this open thread to discuss any non-Kings news throughout the day. Rumors, trades, anything about the draft or the league. If any Kings-specific news happens, we’ll get a separate post up about it as soon as we can.

I am fully ready to convince myself tomorrow that it was better that Monte didn’t make a deal and overpaid, and that there’s a real chance that the guy selected will be a stud who – together with the FA gem that Monte surely will snag – will take us to the next level.

My dad used to say, “Strive to be the best you can be…or hang out with a group of people that make you look better by comparison.” He would then look around the dinner table at us and say, “I’ve made my decision and I’m pretty damned happy with it.”

A quick list of draft day rumors:

1) Houston wants Durant and PHX may be listening
2) Brooklyn holding a fire sale (Finney-Smith?)
3) Warriors want to move Wiggins and Paul

If he can be had for some 2nd rounders and like Duarte or Davion, do it.

Drafting a PG at 13 would make more sense then.

I have concerns that Wiggins may never again be a reliably-solid player. He’s got some personal stuff which I hope can be resolved, because he may still have some good years ahead of him if he can get to a place where he can focus on basketball.

Always feel excited and nervous whenever the Kings get lottery pick….

Hopefully, Ron Hollands falls to the Kings at #13…….

#13 picks in Sacramento Kings history:

(The second guy)

I would take Corliss-sized value at 13 this year. Fine player while he was here, begat Doug Christie when he left, a pro’s pro when he returned years later.

At the time of the 1995 draft, the Mitch Richmond led Kings (next highest minutes and ppg was Walt Williams followed by Spud Webb) were core less when they drafted Corliss.

Unless Monte LOVES a small guard (take your pick, many to chose from) I am hoping for a big, would settle for a wing.

If a guard is taken, it’s either a trade impending or we are bring McNair to an intervention for Small Guard Anonymous (and bring SGA).

Is a drafting a solid back up, maybe starter an adequate “swing” ? or does it have to be a boom or bust pick, in your preference?

I’m not looking for boom / bust. I’m looking for the pick to be used (either via selection or trade) to fill the most glaring holes on the roster: long wing and stretch 4. Note – the acquisition of a legit stretch 4 without losing Barnes kind of takes care of both issues, as Barnes would be a pretty nice bench wing behind Murray, while Lyles would back the 4.

Barnes, Mitchell, 2024 second, 2025 second, 2027 first for Kyle Kuzma or use #13 pick but get back their #26 pick.
Lyles, Vezenkov, 2026 first for Isaiah Stewart.
FA Naji Marshall
Either get DaRon Holmes at #13 or Wizard’s #26
Starters: Fox, Ellis, Murray, Kuzma, Sabonis
Bachups: Monk, Huerter, Marshall, Holmes, Stewart. Also Jones, Edwards, Len.

I know today is a day of smoke and misdirection, so I’m trying to figure out how the Holmes promise/Nuggets at 28 slant fits in. I don’t see him lasting that long, but then again, I’m not an NBA GM either!

I read the KH article, but it’s unclear to me where exactly the promise came from, assuming there is one. Seems like it would’ve come from someplace higher than the Nugs at 28, but there was nothing to shine light on that. The Kings are mentioned, but not identified as the ones who offered the promise, even as speculation.

My dream day is trading 13 plus future firsts and Huerter and/or Barnes to get Dejounte Murray. Then, trade back into the first to get Daron Holmes. If we are trading with ATL, we have a tiny amount of leverage where we can lift the protections on the pick next year. They probably expected that pick this year and didn’t get it so that could be a difference maker for them in a whirlwind of trade considerations on Draft Day.

I’d guess Atlanta is thankful they dodged a bullet in not getting a mid-1st in pretty poor draft class. I’d like to see the protections removed too, if for no other reason than just to get an otherwise bad trade completed and move on.

If they can’t sucker somebody into trading for this pick, then I hope McNair uses it to draft the best player available, regardless of position. This team needs a lot more talent if they’re going to compete. More talent also equals more trade assets.

Best player now. I don’t think there’s enough talent in this class to even start to think about 5 years down the line. Heck, there might not even be enough talent out there at 13 to land somebody who’s still on an NBA roster in 5 years.

The one problem with going BPA regardless of position, is that there is a very convoluted path to playing time at guard unless they trade multiple people at the position (and the guards they would need to trade probably aren’t worth enough as assets to fill the hole at forward).

Excited to hear about what player the kings almost traded for today. I think McNair is smart to continue leaking about trades he almost completed despite the fact that he does not have the assets to make those type of trades.

It’s a great strategy to to distract fans from asking why the GM of a team whose missed the playoffs in the three of the four years under his tenure don’t have any additional assets to use in trades.

I don’t have any faith that this front office will be able to pull off a trade today that will be of any impact on the roster because they have not been able to do so in the last trade windows. Here’s to year 35 of Harrison Barnes starting at PF.

Monte evaluates players, determines a value for them, and doesn’t pay over that value. He refuses to overpay, and also refuses to accept less for his own chips than what he thinks they’re worth. It’s a highly disciplined approach. Some would call it too conservative, and I suppose that’s fair. But it’s the reason the Kings have no albatross contracts on the books, no untradeable assets in uniform, and have never swapped X for X-1 out of ignorance or spite. It’s a big reason they are now–finally!–in the ranks of respected NBA franchises after nearly 2 decades of tomfoolery and mockery. Complain about HB all you want, but he’s not a trade exception plus the rights to Alex Oriakhi. Remember where we came from.

Well, now is the time to risk and overpay. There’s nothing to wait for. The window of opportunity opened last year.

And I don’t care where the Kings came from (they were a horribly run organization)- only where they are going. And striving to be great, not just “better than we were”. Who cares

I actually agree the time to be aggressive is now, and will be very disappointed if the team makes no or marginal roster moves again this summer. I just dispute the idea that the current FO is incompetent and using the media to hide or excuse it. McNair has proven himself to be a competent GM. Pete D’Alessandro he is not.

I agree that Monte seems to be good/competent but he’s non risk approach may say otherwise. Though, who knows how much is Vivek.

This off season will tell all.

I mean, I’ve even heard Monte saying they are ready to move and he thinks he’s got assets.

That’s the one place Monte has not done very well…garnering assets.

Wonder if GS would trade Moses Moody for #13? They need to shed salary and don’t use him anyway (why I don’t know). Also look for Portland to deal one of their picks. They’ve got too many young guys. Say #14 for Duarte or Mitchell?

If the kings simply make the pick tonight and that is it for the off-season, I’ll be pretty apathetic heading into the season. If that’s the case two things will need to happen 1) Huerter will need to demonstrate last year was an aberration; 2) Keegan needs to take another step and average 20+ points.

I hope Monte keeps to his philosophy and doesn’t massively overpay on any trade. SAC got here by making smart moves, not desperate ones.

This year’s trade deadline looks to provide better opportunities to seize on other team’s poor roster management since not every team is financially ready for the new CBA (high tax payments for the higher apron teams). If any of those teams are out of playoff contention early and still looking at large tax bills, I want the Kings to be in a position to pounce and take advantage of the one-time situation that the new CBA provides.

lol…its only been 2 years since this team had the league’s longest playoff drought, I don’t actually believe you need to be reminded how this franchise was run before McNair.

What’s so funny to me, is that most of the moves you’re advocating for would ruin a team for the long-term if they don’t work out. That is the exact kind of thinking that the Kings need to avoid. The Kings are not one-piece away yet, they need to become a consistent playoff team first.

He’s got around $60M/2 years remaining on his deal. He’s a former Kentucky Wildcat. He fits well as a Power Forward.

I think that would be a better fit than some of the others mentioned as a PF.

IMO and from what I’ve seen on Blazers Edge, many believe Simons is not in the team’s long-term plans, but they need both Scoot and Sharpe to continue improving before they’d be willing to move off of Simons since if one of the others doesn’t work out, they still have a legitimate scorer in the back-court.
They could also go small if they move Grant as Deni could play the 4 until they find a better balance.

Washington trades into the lottery at #14 – Adjida for #14 and Brogdon.
Any #13 for Kuzma is now done.
Would need futures to get Kuzma. Grant might be available from Portland.

Why does that take Kuzma off the table? They still have the 26 pick this year. Obviously they are not trying to compete since they just traded Avdija. The wizards would have 13 and 14 this draft.

I don’t really like Kuzma, so I hope he isn’t traded to the Kings.

Kuzma’s perceived value is all over the place.

Some people think he’s worth 2 1sts, other say he’s worth 2nds and a decent vet. I don’t really like Kuzma so anything but a late 1st for him seems too rich for me. Personally, I hope the Kings pass on him but I would defer judgement on the move until I see Kuz play in an environment that demands effort.

Nic Claxton re-signed with the Nets, 4 years/$100m.

Devin Carter’s draft day suit has me thinking the Kings should trade up for him!

Quieter than I expected in here after eleven picks.
