The second NorCal team is finally on the clock.

While the Sacramento Kings will try their hardest to pull out all the stops as they seek their first postseason appearance since the 2005-2006 season, the team’s slow start will leave them lottery bound for at least one more season.

Kings fans will be pulling hard for the ping-pong ball to fall in their favor. However, a pick in the 10-14 range their most likely outcome.

Since the Kings seem sufficiently loaded in the front-court (due to the presence of Marvin Bagley, Harry Giles, and a surging Richaun Holmes) and guards (with De’Aaron Fox, Buddy Hield, and Bogdan Bogdanovic) Sacramento would be wise to seek help primarily at small forward.

Isaac Okoro could be the perfect heir apparent to Harrison Barnes. The former Auburn Tigers wing is a fantastic defender both on and off the ball.

His offensive game was limited in college. However, he did show great intelligence as a passer and shooter. When he shoots, it’s always a good shot. He has also been praised for his hustle and energy.

The Kings have a number of young, talented, scorers on their roster. Adding a player like Okoro, who can be a difference-maker without the ball in his hands, would be a great addition to Sacramento’s roster.

He would seamlessly allow the team’s main sources of offense to continue to develop without disruption. Multiple scouts have compared him to a slightly quicker version of wingman Justin Anderson.
