ESPN's Chad Ford, who gives Sacramento an A-:
Kings GM Pete D'Alessandro has been on the job just nine days, but things are already looking up. Having McLemore, one of the two or three top talents in the draft, slide all the way to No. 7 is a godsend.
USA Today (also an A-):
The Kings basically ignored the composition of their team in making these picks, but they wound up with perhaps the best prospect in the draft and an athletic point guard with potential.
A good pick for them, but maybe not transcendent. He has the ability to be a game changer or a ghost for the Kings. Nothing in between.
And finally, SBNation.com. The blurb from Jonathan Tjarks:
The Kings are thrilled that McLemore, expected to go as high as No. 2, fell to them at No. 7. With all the talk around McLemore centering around his choice of agents and his lack of aggression at Kansas, it's easy to forget how much talent he has. He's an elite athlete and an elite shooter, someone who could conceivably compete in the Three-Point Shootout and the Dunk Contest.
I gave the pick a B for fit only because the team is heavy on guards. Clearly, I think it was a spectacular pick.
