Forgotten or dismissed in many discussions about the current Kings' wings is Tyler Honeycutt. The Kings liked Honeycutt enough to make him the 35th pick in the draft, over another 2nd round pick of theirs, Isaiah Thomas. However, unlike Thomas, Honeycutt never really got any big time minutes, only seeing meaningful playing time in a handful of games.

Honeycutt has a lot of intriguing potential, being a very versatile player in college. He can handle the ball, attack the basket, block shots, and play pesky defense. Now he needs to be able to do all of those things at once, as well as become a consistent shooter, something he was not in college. He also needs to put on some weight so that he can better handle the rigors of an NBA season as well as match up better against opposing SFs.

Now going into his 2nd year, and with the Kings SF spot as open as ever, Honeycutt will need to take advantage of every opportunity he gets. He may not have the experience to become the starter, but even becoming a regular rotation player will be big for his development, and big for the Kings if he plays well.
