Re-drafting previous picks can be a tricky business. In this situation, though, re-doing the Sacramento Kings’ last four first-round selections was a breeze.

Over the last couple of years, the Sacramento Kings have had the luxury of using four first-round draft picks. Unfortunately, the overall results of those selections haven’t been quite as impactful as Vlade Divac was probably hoping for.

Yes, hindsight is always 20/20. Looking back is usually far easier than looking forward. While that may be the case, the Kings’ recent draft history demands some reconsideration.

With that said, not all of Sacramento’s recent draft decisions have been awful. There have been a couple who appear to panning out, and it’s not like we can completely judge draft picks within a year or two. Typically it can take some of these young, one-and-done talents a few years before they unlock their full potential.

Regardless, it doesn’t hurt to do a little harmless re-drafting as we work our way through the middle of the 2018-19 NBA campaign. Especially as we start to see some of the league’s top prospects start to develop, it becomes an interesting exercise to imagine other players suiting up for the Kings.

So take it for what it is, and enjoy my re-drafting of the Kings’ last four first-round picks.
