NBA Trade Rumors: Sacramento Kings trying to acquire draft pick

The Sacramento Kings at the very least hold the No. 8 pick in the NBA Draft this summer and are holding out hope that they can snap a top-3 pick. But while they have prime real estate in the lottery, it’s the only pick the Kings have and that’s not something that the front office is tickled about.

As a result, the Kings plan on trying to acquire a second-round draft pick to mine what is being dubbed the deepest draft in years.

It’s possible that the Kings could end up with Marcus Smart or Noah Vonleh in the first round of the draft but they’re looking to get a crack at the likes of DeAndre Daniels, LaQuiton Ross, Russ Smith and whoever else falls into the second round of the draft.

Acquiring a draft pick in this year’s draft is easier said than done, but that won’t stop the Kings form trying.
