With the 15th pick in the NBA Draft, the Sacramento Kings selected Justin Jackson, small forward from North Carolina. The Kings addressed the hole at point guard with the 5th pick, and their other glaring need with the 15th. It’s a solid fit for need, and puts another shooter around De’Aaron Fox.

Jackson would have been a reach at the 10th pick, but I think he’s a nice value at 15, especially since the Kings picked up the 20th pick as well. Jackson was a key player on a national championship team, and his shooting should translate easily.

The Kings still have the 20th and 34th picks in the draft. Stay tuned for more draft coverage.
