2017 NBA Lottery Mock Draft 1.0
For the Kings to sit at the 8th spot and grab De’Aaron Fox would seem like a steal, but it could be a testament to the loaded draft class.
Fox went head-to-head with Lonzo Ball in the NCAA Tournament and thoroughly outplayed him. If people didn’t know about the prospect that Fox was then, everyone knew about him after that game.
He has the quickness, length, and defensive game to be a stud in the league for any years to come. But can Sacramento get the pick right? The Kings have needed a point guard for the past multiple drafts and have elected to go big in each top pick.
Despite trading Cousins, the Kings arguably have a brighter future than New Orleans. They have Buddy Hield, Cauley-Stein, Skal, and ‘Big Papa’ to go with this pick and possibly the 10th pick in this year’s draft.
If Fox is on the board when the Kings are picking, he better be the pick.
