Kings Close Busy Month of Pre-Draft Workouts
Since the Kings secured the Nos. 5 and 10 picks in the 2017 NBA Draft, nearly 70 prospective players have been welcomed into Golden 1 Center as part of the pre-Draft evaluation process.
Several notable players have highlighted this group of prospects, including projected first round talent such as: De’Aaron Fox, Josh Jackson, Zach Collins, Justin Jackson, Donovan Mitchell, Jarrett Allen, John Collins, Harry Giles and Ivan Rabb.
Most recently, Wake Forest center John Collins discussed the pre-Draft process and his potential NBA contributions following his Sacramento workout.
Additionally, Kings Vice President of Basketball Operations Scott Perry met with the media after the conclusion of the team's final workout to share his thoughts.
“We really were impressed with not only how they worked, but how they represented themselves as young men,” said Perry. “We learned about them, they learned a lot about us and what we’re trying to get accomplished here in Sacramento. We felt that this process went very well.”
With the benefit of insight gained from these workouts at their disposal, the Kings now set their focus on Draft Day, where they will be seeking additions to their young core with their three selections (Nos. 5, 10, and 34 overall).
