2020 Kings Herald Draft Board: Pick No. 14

Saddiq Bey is off the board. Who will go next?

With 35.8% of the vote, Saddiq Bey is off the board.  He joins Anthony Edwards, James Wiseman, Deni Avdija, Killian Hayes, Tyrese Haliburton, LaMelo Ball, Isaac Okoro, Onyeka Okongwu, Obi Toppin, Devin Vassell, Patrick Williams and Aaron Nesmith.

When a choice comes up, pick who you'd want the Kings to pick given all the players remaining.  Note: THIS IS NOT A MOCK DRAFT. This is a draft board, a ranked list of prospects you'd like to see the Kings pick. In other words, if we were the Kings front office, when our pick came up, we'd take the top name left on our board. So pick your choice, not who you think Monte McNair or anyone else would choose in a slot.

This is the last poll before the final TKH draft board is set.   Thank you for participating!

Poku is a clear upside pick. Worth the risk.

I question the combined playmaking of Hield, Bey, Barnes. The Bogdanovic trade moves Bey down on my board. Same with Vassell, Nesmith, and all the other 3&D wings who are below average playmakers.

Does anyone have any info on Donte and Dj? I’ve heard of DD’s defense and after the trade talks, I watched some of his videos. He looks like he can do a lot of the things Bogi could. Of course I’m not saying he can do it at Bogi’s level but he is young. Also, from what I watched, it looks like he was the primary ball handler when Gianas was off the court? He looks a little undersized to play the 2. I wonder if he could play pg when fox sits.

Dj looks like someone who can get hot and put up points randomly. That jump shot would fit the 4 out system if monte wants to run things like the rockets.

i just hope most of what they’ve learned under coach bud comes with them to sac. Since we haven’t shown any signs of being able to develop players.

i found an 8 minute video showing how Divincenzo’s defense and nose for rebounds and loose balls is sort of off the charts. The examples are impressive, the description good, and the stats back it up.

I found this one. High motor defensive guy with good effort and an okay offensive game. Maybe his game expands with more opportunities in Sac, or he gets exposed as an inefficient offensive player without the Buck stars. Either way, I think he will be good.

Our boy Chad Ford said on his pod today that the Kings are interested in Saddiq Bey

I wouldn’t object to it. His 3 point shooting is for real and I believe he is a good defender with great footwork. He has shown improvement which is a good sign because he might continue that trend. I think he realized his bully ball old man post game was not incredibly effective and changed his focus (either on his own or by coach) to be more of a perimeter threat, and that WAS effective. These changes sometimes never make their way onto the notepads of scouts who saw him live when he was doing the 40 year old man post game against mid-major opponents. Some highlights show some slick side to side dribbling to keep the defender guessing before making a move or pull up 3. And then guarding the opposing team’s best player, while sometimes bringing the ball up the court, and being a good student. He has a #12 pick value I believe. Although I would prefer Tillman, I don’t think we would be disappointed with Bey.
