Following 2019 draftees!!!

#1
Yes. It's HERE!!! The thread you've all been waiting for!!!! HOOO-RAY@!@#$!!!~!

Now before I even begin let me just put in this disclaimer - This isn't the complain about having no pick thread.

This thread is about the potential draftees, internationally born in the years 1997 to 2000, the college kids and the select few who become eligible thru various loopholes!!!

Yes, you read correctly; 2000! Ricky Rubio was the first player born in the 90's to play in the NBA, this draft will produce the first from the 2000's.

I'm gonna reserve 2 spots below, one to copy/paste the details of the Kings 2nd rd picks. The other I'm gonna throw together a mock.

Also lets not pretend like the Kings don't have the firepower to move up in this draft and secure a potential asset their eyeing. It's not like the Kings scouting staff has the year off cuz of no pick.

Plus I believe the Kings will find a gem in the 2nd rd. I believe in the strength of the field too, basketball is a global game thats improving rapidly, the people who hate on this drafts depth now will have a whole different picture come this time next year. A lot of steel will be sharpened this coming season, much of the heavy lifting is being done right now in the off-season.

so barring a first round pick via trade, we should be looking at potential second rounders for 2019 and nothing more....no?

I don't think these threads are intended to look only at kids the Kings could draft - there are plenty of folks around here, myself included, who enjoy following the entire NBA draft process from start to end.

That said, to avoid using a more colorful metaphor (like maybe a color with a bit shorter wavelength than green) this may as well be considered the Tantalus In Tartarus thread.

please, no metaphors. I like to keep things simple.

Yes but I am like a big fan of this stuff and every year there's several players that fall in the 2nd or that go undrafted whom I like. Fred Van Vleet just got an 18 million dollar 2 year deal.

There will be low-hanging fruit available it remains to be seen if they can pick it.

Once we start getting into the names and faces involved this will be more fun.

Plus with the way the Kings roster is set up they can definitely look for draft-and-stash candidates, like uber athlete Adam Mokoka a 6'5" wrecking ball of a swingman.

The Kings have plenty of assets that can be used to move up in this draft....

First, I would have had Barrett number one, but it's foolish to argue at this point when they haven't played one college game yet. By the way, for those interested, Kentucky is going to be playing some early games in the Bahamas in August sometime and I've heard that they will be televised. The mystery man in this coming draft is Williamson. Not sure what to expect from a 6'5" 255 lb player that looks like an NFL linebacker but with a 40 plus inch vertical. Saw him in a dunk contest which he won quite easily and was blown away with his athleticism. Now we have to see how skilled he is. I'll give him this, he's one confident sucker.

Even though we don't have a first rd pick, I'm going to watch my usual quota of games as though we do. You never know what's going to happen. By the time the draft rolls around, we may have obtained one. If not, as Ozymandias stated, there will be some low hanging fruit to be plucked. Just have to do the homework.

Yep plenty of teams right now happy with their 2nd rd selections from past draft, next year we could be them :D

Barrett is the consensus #1 no doubt. Duke is gonna be funky to watch with all these 6'7" forwards, which is what I think they will list Zion at in the NBA. He is able to just causally lift off the ground to where his heads at rim level so he's a pretty damn good shotblocker and projects to be that way in the NBA.
