The Kings are apparently looking to get frisky tonight.  There seems to be a clear line drawn at the top-8 of this draft, with all picks between 3 and 8 being sought after.

The Vertical's Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the Kings have multiple future first-rounders on the table for the 8th pick:

I can't see the Kings giving up the 8th pick for future picks, just seeing how the Kings have operated in the recent past.  They want help now and would likely need another asset that can provide immediate relief as well.

Of course, the Kings might be getting antsy that the guy they really want isn't available at 8 and could look to move up, as CSNChicago's Vincent Goodwill.

If that's the case, I feel like it's signaling the Kings really want Buddy Hield and doubt he'll be there at 8, which seems true.  Woj is reporting that Hield is the favorite in Minnesota if Kris Dunn is gone by pick 5, and all indications out of Boston right now are that they're heavily considering Dunn at 3.
