Ford: Sacramento Won't Leave Yi on the Board

New, comments

ESPN's Chad Ford on Yi Jianlian:

The Kings may be his backstop. One source in Sacramento told me they are high enough on Yi that he would be a lock at No. 10 if he fell that far.

Geoff Petrie went down to see Yi last Wednesday. I'm rather positive he'll go no later than #7 (Minnesota). But stranger things have happened -- Rudy Gay went 8th after being project top 2 in the last hours a year ago. So Yi, project now at about #5, could slip down to the Kings.
