McCollum to Kings in Chad Ford's Latest Mock Draft

Bob Donnan-US PRESSWIRE

The Kings continue to confuse Chad Ford as he switches up his prediction for Sacramento yet again.

Having a new ownership group, new front office and new coaching staff means the Kings are really hard to read right now heading into the draft. As such, Chad Ford has gone with C.J. McCollum as his latest prediction for who the Kings take at #7 in Thursday's draft, replacing Michael Carter-Williams.

The Kings continue to be all over the place. Every day a new prospect; this reflects a young front office, an inexperienced head coach and owner and very little time to prep for the draft. McCollum, Bennett, Shabazz Muhammad, Steven Adams are all possibilities here. Ditto for Carter-Williams.

However, after his second workout there, McCollum's name is beginning to surface as a potential selection. The Kings also are exploring trades right now. Two sources told ESPN.com that they're using Jimmer Fredette as trade bait to pick up another first-round pick in the mid- to-late first round so they can grab either Tim Hardaway Jr. or Tony Snell. The Jazz, in particular, have been looking to move up and like McCollum, so that's one plausible scenario.

The Bee's Jason Jones adds a little something on the Jimmer front:
