The Sacramento Kings will certainly be one of the teams to watch in the offseason.
They could wind up with two key free agents. Forward Rudy Gay can opt out of the final year of his contract and become an unrestricted free agent while point guard Isaiah Thomas is at the end of his rookie deal and he will become a restricted free agent this summer.
The Kings also hold the eighth-overall pick in the draft and many believe they will try to trade it in an attempt to get back into the postseason. That, however, hasn’t stopped them from working out several prospects.
According to Robert Tillery of The Commercial Appeal, the Kings will work out former Michigan Wolverines’ forward Glenn Robinson III and former Wichita State Shockers forward Cleanthony Early.
Robinson, who measured in at 6’6.75″ and 211 lbs. with a 6’10″ wingspan at the NBA’s Scouting Combine, averaged 13.1 points, 4.4 rebounds and 1.2 assists per game last season. He shot 48.8% from the fiedl, 30.6% from beyond the arc and 75.7% from the free throw line. Jonathan Givony ranks Robinson as the 33rd-best prospect in the draft. Givony projects the Oklahoma City Thunder to snatch up Robinson with the 29th-overall pick in the first round of the draft.
Early, who measured in at 6’7.25 and 209 lbs. with a wingspan of 6’10.75, put up 16.3 points and 6.0 rebounds per game while shooting 48.7% from the field, 37.6% from three and 84.2% from the charity stripe last season. He is ranked as the draft’s 30th-best prospect. Anthony is currently projected to be selected by the Dallas Mavericks with the 34th-overall pick in the second round of the draft.
The draft is Thursday, June 26.
