2020 NBA Draft Prediction Contest

Make your best guess at what will happen in the NBA Draft for the chance to win a shirt from the Kings Herald store!
By | 37 Comments | Nov 18, 2020

Via Wiki Commons

It’s Draft Day, and what better time to kickoff a new annual tradition of predicting the draft!  Usually this would just be for internet karma, but the winner of this contest will win a free shirt from the Kings Herald store of their choosing!

Here’s how the contest works:

  1. Write your prediction for the 1st 14 picks in the NBA Draft, and then your prediction for just the Kings 2nd round picks at #35, #43 and #52.
  2. You get 1 point for guessing a non-Kings pick correctly, 3 points for guessing the #12 pick correctly, and 5 points for guessing any of the Kings second rounders correctly.
  3. If the Kings happen to trade one or more of their picks, your prediction will still count as if the Kings had drafted whoever is taken at that slot.  So if you guess John Smith at #35 and the Kings trade that pick but John Smith still gets taken at #35, you win.
  4. In the event of a tie, the winner will go first to the player with the most correct calls of Kings picks and then to a random drawing if there’s still a tie.

All submissions must be in by 5 pm Pacific Time to count.  Good luck to you all!

I just want to know when the Kings are going to trade Buddy or Barnes to make room for Nesmith.

If only there were a trade thread.

I think if anyone manages to accumulate fifteen points under the rules, they should also get a wizard hat, and reach out to me with any stock tips. You might do as well picking names out of a hat after Edwards, but alas, all of my hats are being refitted to accommodate my mohawk.

speaking of predictions, on a scale of 1-10, how dramatic will this draft be for the Kings? I think a 10 would be some sort of trade that moves them into the top 3, and a 1 would be drafting Aaron Neismith with the #12 pick, then drafting like Udoka Azubuike and Cassius Winston, and selling the third second rounder.

I’m not sure what amuses me more. Guessing Tillman, Halliburton at 10, or getting Vassell right.

I wasn’t even trying and got one right. LOL If that isn’t proof how difficult predicting these things are, I don’t know what is.

I don’t understand how so many people have Killian hayes falling to the kings, a few draft experts I listen to have him as their number ONE prospect. If he falls to us, we have to take him

RunningLikeFox

One of the main reasons is that three separate mock drafts, including ESPN and Kevin O’Connor, who has him as his number one prospect, have us taking him, which is why it’s gaining steam.

The Athletic & The Ringer have Hayes somehow falling to #12 (I don’t have access to the ESPN mock draft, so Idk how they projected him go to the Kings).

The mock drafts for The Athletic & The Ringer (& apparently ESPN) have Hayes going to the Kings. That’d surprise me, but it’d make me very happy.

he’s a playmaker. I think they’d have to trade up to get him.

12.Killian Hayes (KLJ if Hayes is gone; Jaden McDaniels if both are gone)

second rounders
#35 – Paul Reed
#42 – Tre Jones
#43 – Jordan Ford

But I bet they trade one or more of these picks. Weird trade of the night. If Jaden McDaniels falls past 15, then package 1 or 2 seconds (#35 and/or #42) and the rights to Bjelly for McDaniels. Bjelly is a lot better, and would help a good team – ie. picking late in the first. McDaniel has top 10 maybe top 5 upside, but needs work. Kings need to play the long game
