8. Sacramento Kings – Kai Jones, F, Texas
The Sacramento Kings need to future out the future of their frontcourt and adding another possible building block in Kai Jones wouldn’t be the worse of selections. Jones is still somewhat of a project but has great size and athleticism for a player you want late in the top 10.
Jones is coming off a season in which he averaged nine points and five rebounds on 38 percent shooting from 3-point range. Any team that selects him will have to develop and help him find his way at the next level.
Even though the Kings haven’t exactly been a great example of a franchise that can do that, Jones is certainly a player that Sacramento should be all over at this point in the draft.
