So,in the upcoming NBA draft the Kings as we all know are picking at #7.What if that changed and we traded the pick to Atlanta for the #17 and #18 picks?Seems bad because we'd trade out of the lottery for two mid first round picks.In reality this draft is going to make you take some chance if your not drafting top 5.So we might as well take a swing for the home run,and take Giannis Adetokunbo and Tim Hardaway Jr.
Let's say Giannis decides to stay(which he most likely will) in Europe for another year or two to polish up his game.What if in those two years Giannis becomes a superstar and becomes our SF for the future and what if Hardaway Jr becomes reliable enough to become our starting SG and be good for 12-15 a night and play good defense.Now look at our lineup in a few years:
SG Hardaway Jr
C Big Cuz
What if when we move Tyreke to PG he goes back to his 20 5 and 5 days or even better and DMC becomes the player we think he can become and average 22plus and 12plus with Giannis averaging 18plus...Now going into the new arena in a 2016 we have an up and coming legit contender for a possible title.
I know this would be the absolute greatest outcome possible in this draft but we can't count it out because Hardaway Jr is a good bet to be a Danny Green type player and Giannis is just an average SF but Tyreke and DMC turn out to be All-Stars or even just one of them and the other a perennial all-star we still have a great team.This is a HUGE longshot and a HUGE risk and could put us in the lottery for another 7 years but it has a HUGE reward if it all turns out.
