Draft Day is finally here in what is sure to be an exciting day for Kings fans. Sacramento has been mentioned in so many trade rumors that perhaps the most shocking thing that they could possibly do is stand pat at the 8th pick today.
The Draft itself will start at 4:30 PM Pacific Time on ESPN. Should the Kings keep the 8th pick, they'll likely pick around 5:10 to 5:15 or so, but again, that seems to be an unlikely scenario at this point.
With how active Sacramento is likely to be, make sure to keep checking Sactown Royalty throughout the day as we'll be keeping you up to date on any rumors or trades that may happen before the draft. Our first draft day open thread will start at around 4 PM so come on and join us! I actually discovered StR back in 2008 thanks to the reaction of the StR Draft Day Thread to the pick of Jason Thompson.
Also be sure to check SBNation.com for coverage on other teams, such as the trade the Mavericks and Knicks made yesterday to send Tyson Chandler back to Dallas.
Draft Day is one of my favorite times of the year. It signals a fresh start and brings hope to fanbases and I can't wait to see what happens with the Kings.
