Mario Hezonja joins Kristaps Porzingis, Justise Winslow, Willie Cauley-Stein, Emmanuel Mudiay, Jahlil Okafor, D'Angelo Russell and Karl-Anthony Towns on the Sactown Royalty Board.

On picking Hezonja, commenter betweentheeyes said:

An athletic perfect sized 3 who can play the 2, is a seasoned pro coming over from another pro squad (which makes him more like a FA acquisition than a green rookie; he is in some ways like Chicago's Mirotic though not anywhere near the experience of Houston's Pablo Prigioni but it is my opinion this is an under appreciated consideration) - he is the best shooter (see this yahoo sports link) by one account, he can defend, he is athletic - what's his weakness? Reports of being dissatisfied about not getting playing time? Swagger? Hmmm, no off the court stuff as far as I can see. He is a "lijep" prospect and whom I expect the Kings to choose should Okafor or Towns or Russell be unavailable. I think he is a better fit and has more tools than Mudiay, Cauley-Stein or "the Winslow boy" that young gentlemen from Duke.

When a choice comes up, pick who you'd want the Kings to pick given all the players remaining. Note: THIS IS NOT A MOCK DRAFT. This is draft board, a list with the order of prospects you'd like to see the Kings pick. In other words, if we were the Kings front office, when our pick came up, we'd take the top name left on our board. So pick your choice, not who you think Vlade Divac, Pete D'Alessandro or anyone else would choose in a slot.

Explain your choice in the comments, and lobby for who should be added to the next pick's choices.

This poll ends at 11 PM tonight. The next one will be begin Monday morning. We will go roughly 20 picks deep.
