2022 Kings Herald Draft Board: Pick No. 8

Bennedict Mathurin is off the board.

With 33.6% of the vote, Arizona's Bennedict Mathurin is on the board. He joins Keegan Murray, Jaden Ivey, Shaedon Sharpe, Paolo Banchero, Chet Holmgren and Jabari Smith Jr.

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.

Explain your choice in the comments, and lobby for who should be added to the next pick's choices.

This poll ends at 5 AM tomorrow. The next one will begin shortly thereafter.  We will go roughly 20 picks deep.

Yeah, I don’t vote at this point because I have no clue about the rest of these dudes.

All I know, is do something different than whatever the Babygiraffe wants.

Sochan, again. Defense looks solid. Offensively he can cut well and has some good BBIQ.

I don’t know anything about Sochan, but on these boards it seems like he’s got some fans. What’s his game like? Saw you mentioned his defense, cutting and IQ. Those skills would definitely work well on our team.

His number aren’t that different from Jaden Ivey. Sochan is better on 2s, Ivey better at 3s and FTs. Sochan has a better EFG%, Ivey has a better TS%. So it’s not like he is a complete black hole on offense. He is also a 3/4 that plays defense, and that is extremely valuable in the NBA.

Comparing to Ivey as a shooter doesn’t do him favors. I have Ivey as the 6th pick for me because I dont think building around a guard that can’t shoot is the answer.

Very versatile defender, 2-4, with good size and length that can’t shoot. His 2pt fg percentage looks ok, but that’s from transition points and dunks and cuts. His 3pt% is very bad, like in the high 20s, and his free throw percentage was low too, in the 50s. Classic case of if he can learn to shoot, he would be a steal.

His college numbers almost mirrored Scottie Barnes. Scottie has done rather well thus far.

Looking at the King’s roster, players 1-3 (Fox/Sabonis/Barnes) are good, 4-6 (Mitchell, DD, Holmes) are okay, and 7-15 are just not that good. They really need to improve players 4-15 to start turning this thing around.

The other problem, I see, is nobody in this draft is likely to be good enough to be that #1.

Although I’ll quibble a bit and argue it’s possible Fox could get there history be damned. I’m not banking or arguing anything is guaranteed or high likelihood, just that I think it’s possible.

If we trade back this is my sweet spot for Mathurin. Anybody else think the top 10 is looking pretty volatile in terms of trading or staying put? Trade back scenarios could get a little tricky with some teams probably looking to outright trade their picks. Unfortunately, Portland isn’t going to be trading up I don’t think. So if we do trade back and are eyeing Mathurin 6 or 9 makes more sense because I don’t think NO at 8 is trading up either.

Forwards are going to be flying off the board this draft, even if they aren’t necessarily BPA. Every team needs one, and there aren’t a lot of good ones in the draft after the lottery. I expect a lot of good guards/wings getting pushed down into the early second round simply due to supply and demand.

It’s become a forward/wing league. I saw somewhere that the tallest guy playing in the Finals is just 6’9″ (Horford, I believe?). Versatile dudes between 6’6″ and 6″10″ with long wingspans is the current trend I guess. It makes me think that it is more and more likely that Chet falls to the Kings at #4

I’d love that since I believe Chet is a forward with just a couple extra inches. But the more draft buzz I hear, it doesn’t sound like he’ll fall past OKC, if he makes it that far.

Griffin for me. I feel that he will slip on this board due to post-Buddy bias, but this kid looks like he will be an efficient scorer, especially from distance.

DD this time, he’s got decent defensive chops already, and with his height and length, he may be able to guard 1-3, and maybe PF if he adds some muscle in his first few years.

His shooting isn’t great, but he’s at about 74% from the free throw line, which at least suggests that he can become a better shooter.

Ah, to hell with this, I was trying to talk myself into Daniels here, but I think Agbaji and Liddell might be safer bets and better fits.

My, how I do go on…

That’s a tough one to measure, admittedly. And it has the built-in advantage of there being no real way to ascertain whether an assistant is doing a good job or not, barring something completely egregious.

Goofus had a good record as a fill-in on one of the best teams in NBA history. It certainly didn’t help him win games as a head coach here or in Los Angeles. I wouldn’t go so far as to call the assistant gigs no-show jobs, but they can be handed out basically as favors if the head coach has juice.

Walton was a well-below average player, and an abject failure as a head coach. What can he possibly offer that a coach without a famous father couldn’t? I’d rather have someone who was hungry to make a name for themselves, rather than one simply living off of his father’s accomplishments, most of which, it should be noted, took place almost half-a-century ago.

Walton isn’t hungry. He’s never been hungry a day in his life. He’s never been told no, and little more than simply showing up has ever been required of him. Why you’d want someone like this around your team is baffling.

He has a ton of experience as a HC which naturally makes him an asset as an assistant coach. Not complicated.

I’m a bit surprised by this. One, I thought he’d take a year away and kind of reassess his coaching future. Two, I didn’t think he would leave the West Coach. He’s pretty rooted here. Born and raised in San Diego, played for Arizona, all but one season with the Lakers (the only other one was with Cleveland!), then coached in G.S., L.A., and finally Sac.

It should’ve been a rule that he had to coach the Clippers, so that every California team would be touched by his talents.

Or maybe the Miami Heat, if we are counting all the California Classic teams.

You’re not worried about the decision-making, TOs, foul trouble, and lack of playmaking/shooting? Eason is a good athlete and I can see how he projects at the next level, but I’m just not certain if he’ll be able to process the game fast enough to keep up. Outside of rebounding and some decent 1v1 defense, he could really end up mostly unplayable.

He might be, but I prefer two way players over a one-trick pony like Griffin or Sochan.

I’d still love to have him workout for the Kings or read up on other workouts he has done.

If we are sticking with Star or Bust, my choice is Nikola Jovic, but he isn’t an available option.

I am basing all of my thoughts on reading dozens of scouting reports – I have all of the knowledge and expertise of a horsetrack enthusiast picking up the day’s racing form – my next pick for Sacramento would be Ochai Agbaji – even though he is a Jayhawk and the Kings history of Lawrence, KS picks has turned out awfully. His stats are too good to ignore. He is least likely to be a Star but has that higher floor, lower ceiling attribute that GM McNair prefers.

4 things 

4 things I’ve been pondering and discovered while scouring the interwebs for Kings content over the weekend.   It’s a sickness many of us suffer from.

#1 Apparently I’m slowly warming up  on the idea of gambling on Sharpe at 4.   I voted Keegan Murray for the Kings pick at 4 in The Kings Herald mock draft series.  I made my valid arguments for that selection (of Murray)and I validated some of the other points made that bolstered my opinion.   What changed?   I watched more video on Sharpe and I read the opinions of many draft “experts”.   In summary, Sharpe shows so much to make you believe that he is damn good and shows a TON of potential to be a star.   To the point that he could very well be the best player in the draft.   Was the luck of landing at #4 over number #1 the best case scenario?   A gift from the Luca gods to make up for the cluster fuck of MBIII ?   Who knows.   That said, at the very worst Sharpe looks like a solid rotational player for many many years.   Thats a very fair, practical and logical worst case scenario.   With that in mind, the risk reward gamble isn’t so bad.   That’s an important point that really helped sway my opinion.   Does it sway yours?   I think it’s pretty safe to say that Sharpe has a respectable high floor.  At worst a career as a super 6th man?   This presumed “fact” makes super star hunting at pick #4 a more logical selection than I thought 5 days ago.  Shit… I need a beer.  

#2  This is a random thought comnected with #1.  —-  Fox played for Kentucky.   Sharpe was in Kentucky for the last year.   Any thoughts on that connection or the inside information that Fox might have on Sharpe?   I think that’s an interesting little wrinkle in all of this.   Fox might know some stuff.   And if the kings pick Sharpe at 4 I think I’d feel slightly more comfortable with because I would assume Fox helped get some inside intel for Monte that helped sway the decision to be a guy to pair with the Kentucky PG we currently have.   

# 3  Has anyone else seen the under the radar side story in connection with the Oklahoma City Thunder regarding Serbian star Vasilije Micic who was drafted by Philly in 2014?   I had not heard much about this dude but he’s one of the best players in his league and recently just won his SECOND CONSECUTIVE final four MVP award.   Apparently he’s considering finally committing to the NBA if he’s traded.   My ears perked up on this one because there’s rumors floating out there with the Kings and Thunder making a draft day deal.   The quote from Micic is this: “If this option comes out, I would be ready to risk (it),”.   I find that interesting to say the least.   Could the Kings have a trade in the making with OKC to move up to #2 while also acquiring one of the best European players?   2022 #4, 2024 top 5 protected  and multiple 2nd round picks for the #2 and the rights to Micic?   Maybe that’s not realistic?   Maybe I’m seeing purple trades everywhere I look?   You are too, don’t lie.   At the very least I think it’s a nice conspiracy theory that’s fun to pontificate about.   Apparently Micic is “considering” coming into the league “If this option comes out”.  His words, not mine.   Seems suspicious just one month before the draft.  One could speculate (clearly I am) that this is a very big clue into a Oklahoma City Thunder draft day trade that’s being organized at this very moment (if things work out).   See the article about this Micic thing here if you’re curious: https://www.hoopsrumors.com/2022/05/micic-seeking-nba-move-okc-may-deal-his-rights.html

#4   I saw a very cool trade idea that makes A TON OF SENSE!!!   At least to me.   Gordon Hayward for Richaun Holmes and Justin Holiday.   I love this trade idea and I think it fits perfectly for both teams.   The Kings want to make the playoffs and need impact players to get there while the Hornets desperately need a big man (have shown interest in Holmes).   This also would give them some financial flexibility with the big contracts they have coming up with Miles Bridges this season and Lamelo Ball next season.  It’s a trade that (to me) seems to fit the bill for “good for both teams”.   Hayward is a perfect fit for this roster considering the playoff mandate.   His shooting is much needed!   This is a move that allows the Kings to make the mandate of a  playoff birth a real possibility while not sacrificing the amazing draft lottery luck they just had.   Feels like a win win for both sides which is usually the basis for trades that actually happen over the dream scenarios every fan base comes up with each off season.   I for one would love this trade.  Hayward fits a position of need with a skill set the team needs desperately.   Same for Charolette, Holmes is basically a perfect fit for them and that’s not news to anyone.   The link to the post that lays out this trade possibility is linked here if you are interested to read more. https://nbaanalysis.net/2022/05/26/nba-trade-rumors-sacramento-kings-charlotte-hornets-gordon-hayward/

There’s no telling what Sharpe’s floor is. There’s been a lot of top HS prospects that have ran into a wall the second they hit college, but Sharpe has been able to elude this scouting filter. Yes, he’s a good athlete with obvious ball skills, but that’s with nobody standing in front of him, much less the Marcus Smarts and Matisse Thybulles of the world. Sharpe’s floor is conceivably a rotation player in China by year 5.

I’ve also passingly considered the idea that Hayward comes and plays for the Kings. It seems to make some sense, but I haven’t really given it too much thought and I don’t know what level he’s playing at these days. He’s also a bit old for the Fox-Sabonis timeline.

I’d only do that deal if it includes their 13th pick in this years draft. No way I take Hayward’s contract together with his injury history without getting some sort of compensation.

If they’re willing to include either the 13th or 15th pick then I’d do the trade.

Draft Sharpe, Ivey or Murray with the 4th pick
Draft Sochan or Jovic with the 13th or 15th pick.

Same. I also don’t think the Hornets want the guaranteed salaries of both #13 and #15 when they are about to give Bridges a max deal. I bet Hayward gets packaged with one of them.

The problem with Holmes and Holiday for Hayward and a pick is that it doesn’t work numbers wise. The Kings would still need to send more in contracts. Hayward’s deal is too big and the value of the pick far exceeds the contracts of Holmes and Holiday, by something like $15M.

Barnes and Holmes for Hayward and the pick is the one that works. IMO the Kings only make that deal if they pick a PF at #4 and then slot in Hayward on the wing. If the pick at #4 is Ivey, I don’t think the Kings do it.

Yup, If they do the trade for Hayward, it should be Barnes and Holmes and not Holiday.

It would be interesting if this trade does indeed have some legs to it considering there are also reports that the Kings are trying to move up to the 2nd spot. They could use Charlotte’s 13th or 15th pick together with the 4th pick instead of the rumored 4th pick + a future 1st. Either options would be fine for me tbh.

Hayward makes me nervous, but this trade would be fairly low-risk. Holmes & Holiday aren’t likely to be part of what’s next in Sacramento, and Hayward has the same two years left on his deal as Sabonis, for a total of about $62 million. He’d be great as a starting forward, and could flip-flop with Barnes, depending on match-ups.

Hayward has been injured more than I’d like (and probably more than he’d like), but if that aspect goes completely sideways, he’s a large expiring contract in twelve months.

That said, at the very worst Sharpe looks like a solid rotational player for many many years.

I don’t necessarily agree w/this. Sharpe has a lot of tantalizing qualities, but his floor would be low if he has a low BBIQ.

And if the kings pick Sharpe at 4 I think I’d feel slightly more comfortable with because I would assume Fox helped get some inside intel for Monte that helped sway the decision to be a guy to pair with the Kentucky PG we currently have.

I think workouts & interviews would be more important sources of info for Monte (& hopefully they’d let him know what Sharpe’s BBIQ is like).

Voted Tari Eason because wingspan. Starting the lobby for Orlando Robinson, at least worth a 2nd rd pick.
