Best case is they draft Doncic and he initially stays overseas like Rubio

Seems extremely unlikely any player they pick will propel them to the playoffs in the West though, where they havenít been since 2006
Doncic already made some slight noise about maybe not going to the NBA.

He might be angling to avoid the Kings.

Regarding the pick, I'm trying to wrap my mind around the thinking that the SACs pick will be premium.  It wasn't top 5 this year, when they actually had an incentive to tank.  Next year fox will be older and they have the #2 pick, which could make them a tiny bit better.  And they will have zero incentive to tank.

Will they make the playoffs?  Probably not.  But I'm expecting a pick in the 10-12 range, which is okay but far from great.  That player probably would not even crack the rotation.

On the bright side: Even if Sac is good, Memphis could still be bad enough that their pick gets deferred to 2020, when the protection is only 1-6 instead of 1-8. Or the Clippers could end up in the lottery again, deferring their potential first-rounder to a better draft in 2020.

Look, mathematics says that somebody in the west is going to suck, and we could benefit.

I'm more afraid the pick will be #1 than I am of it being 10-12. The Kings will stink. The Suns will improve, they have Booker. I like fox but he is a couple of years away from leading a team anywhere and who else do the Kings have?

Highest chance any pick has of being no 1 is 14% next year.

Its a risk but a small one, much bigger risk that the Kings randomly win 30+ games. Especially when they don't have any incentive to tank hard in the last few months of the season.

I guess that could happen. They had 27 wins this year which I am surprised by.

On a side note, can people imagine if we had the Kings pick 2-5 this year instead of the lakers?  I know it wasn't a possibility but this place would have gone nuts.

Whoa... if Doncic decides not to enter the NBA next season and instead enter through next year's draft... suddenly that Kings Pick looks real sexy if it lands #2 or #3 next summer...  :o ;D

I feel like JJJ would've been a far better fit on that team versus Bagley. But Bagley's motor and ability to rebound would be useful.

That roster is awful though. Bleh.

Come the end of next season I can see that a lot of people may be mad if our pick isn't "good," when IMO, ANY pick is great because it's bonus ADDED to Tatum!! I'm not getting worked up about this pick at all! The only way I'd even care (very little) is if it's #1. I would love it if we hit on the pick, don't get me wrong, but we already have a prize regardless of that outcome.

What, if we lose the pick or if it's low does it mean any of you would take back the trade if you could? I doubt it. I still think Fultz is gonna be good, he didn't say or do anything to make me dislike him unlike his teammates. He was a rookie, he has plenty of time to get it together. I'm glad DA took Tatum even though I was on Fultz like a fly to poop! I know the name of the trade game is to not lose but I'm still good with Tat no matter what Fultz does, he's ours regardless!

It takes me 3hrs to get to Miami and 1hr to get to Orlando... but I *SPIT* on their NBA teams! "Bless God and bless the (Celts)"-Lady GaGa (she said gays but she really meant Celts)
