Kings Shop No. 9 For Players To Help Them Win Now 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Thu Jul 22, 2021 3:02 pm

The Sacramento Kings have shopped the No. 9 overall pick in the draft for players who can help them win now, sources tell The Ringer.


The Kings finished the 20-21 season with a 31-41 record and were two games out of the final Play-In spot. The Kings last made the playoffs in 2006.


If Sacramento keeps the No. 9 pick, The Ringer currently has Franz Wagner as their selection.

Wonder if #9 + Hield could fetch them something better than the #9 pick alone? After the first 6 picks, there will be a big drop off.

Well, looking at their draft history, it probably makes sense.

Trading the pick is what I'm leaning towards right now as well. Scottie Barnes is the guy I really wanted and that has no chance of happening now with his stock rising. I'd be fine picking Wagner or someone like Garuba as well. Hopefully they don't just take whatever someone offers them to avoid making the pick.
