Here’s the Sacramento Bee reporting on the Kings and the 2014 NBA Draft, which took place last night:
After all the speculation the Kings would trade their pick, Sacramento kept it and selected Michigan guard Nik Stauskas at No. 8 in the 2014 NBA draft.
The front office believes the Canadian-born shooter will help fill multiple holes, but most importantly he can shoot from deep.
The Kings made improving their outside shooting a priority, and Stauskas was one of the best available.
When asked if he was the best shooter in the draft, Stauskas said: “Definitely. Without a doubt.”
Stauskas doesn’t want to be known simply as a shooter, but he realizes why the Kings coveted him.
