For a few weeks now, DraftExpress has stood firm on their projection of Trey Burke to Sacramento, but in their latest mock draft, we see Burke going to the New Orleans Pelicans at 6 and UNLV's Anthony Bennett going to Sacramento at 7 and Jackie Carmichael at 35.
Bennett is widely regarded as one of the more offensively talented players in the draft, with great athleticism and a huge wingspan despite his underwhelming height. Bennett is not working out for teams due to a shoulder injury, but he is interviewing. As of yet he has not interviewed with Sacramento, nor does there seem to be any indication that he might.
Meanwhile, Chad Ford dropped a couple of Kings-related draft tidbits on Twitter:
Kings could really shake-up the draft at 7. Heard they like both Tony Snell & Tim Hardaway Jr. a lot. Both in Sacramento today working out— Chad Ford (@chadfordinsider) June 19, 2013
Kings also like Muhammad, but he had to pull out of a 2nd workout w/ Kings today because of an injury …— Chad Ford (@chadfordinsider) June 19, 2013
Now, I doubt the Kings like one of Hardaway or Snell so much that they'd consider taking them at 7, especially with Pete D'Alessandro on the job for just a few days. But both players would be great targets if the Kings moved down in the draft and/or acquired another mid-to-late first round pick. Today is Snell's second time in Sacramento, and would have been Muhammad's second as well had he not injured his ankle in a workout for the Timberwolves on Sunday.
