Nik Stauskas Press Conference Open Thread

The newest Sacramento King will be introduced to the media at 11:30 PT.

The Sacramento Kings will officially introduce Nik Stauskas on Saturday.  A press conference is scheduled for 11:30 am.

The Kings selected Stauskas with the 8th overall pick in Thursday's NBA Draft.  Stauskas is touring Sacramento, a city he's never visited before, on Saturday.  We already know that Stauskas will be wearing number 10 in Sacramento, and he shared an image of his jersey via Instagram:

Stauskas wore number 11 at Michigan, but 11 is retired by the Kings franchise, dating back to the Rochester Royals era and Hall of Famer Bob Davies.  I suppose this means the Kings didn't have any immediate plans to retire Mike Bibby's jersey.

Use this thread for discussion of the introductory press conference.  There will probably be a live stream of the event, but we're unable to locate a link just yet.  Check the comments, as I'm sure some kind, resourceful soul will be nice enough to share the link once it is found.
