Default Kings Acquire Draft Rights To Georgios Papagiannis And Skal Labissiere, And

The Sacramento Kings acquired the draft rights for center Georgios Papagiannis (YOUR-gos Pa-pa-YAHN-iss) and forward-center Skal Labissiere (Skal La-bee-SEE-AIR), rights to Bogdan Bogdanovic (boag-DAHN boag-DAHN-O-vitch) and a future second-round selection from the Phoenix Suns in exchange for the draft rights to Marquese Chriss on the night of the 2016 NBA Draft, according to Kings Vice President and General Manager Vlade Divac.

Sacramento, which had the eighth pick in the 2016 NBA Draft, selected Chriss out of Washington before sending his draft rights to the Suns. The Suns selected Papagiannis (13th overall) and Labissiere (28th overall) in the first round of the 2016 NBA Draft before trading their draft rights to the Kings.

An early entry candidate, Papagiannis became the highest drafted Greek player ever. Papagiannis played for Panathinaikos (Greece) for four seasons (2011-12 2012-13 and 2014-15 - 2015-16). In 2015-16, the 7-foot-1 center averaged 6.4 points (.678 FG%, .667 FT%), 2.6 rebounds and 11.4 minutes per game in 21 contests. He played high school basketball in the United States at Westtown School in West Chester, Penn., in 2013-14, before returning to Greece.
