At No. 7 in the draft, the Kings options are fairly limited in terms of impact players. At the moment, there are three that are on my radar for the Kings. Those being Brandon Knight, Kawhi Leonard and Kemba Walker.
The latter two seem a bit more likely, as Brandon Knight has been advertised as a lock in the top three, and many speculate he will not fall past the Raptors at five.
A long, silky smooth combo guard who can score from just about anywhere on the floor, and highlights of his workout with the Kings were very impressive.
Leonard looks to be an NBA ready player who will contribute out the gates, and could even shore up the small forward spot for the Kings. A long and physical defensive player, Leonard could solidify one of several holes the Kings need to address.
As of the Mock Draft on ESPN today, Kemba Walker is slated to be the Kings pick at seven. And in my opinion this would be a fantastic fit. The tiny lightning fast guard virtually willed the Huskies to an NCAA title, the dude can flat-out score.
The guy is a born leader and a high character guy, which would be a great change from spotty players the Kings have selected the last few years (Whiteside, Cousins, Evans) and could be that leader on the floor this team desperately needs.
While Knight would be great, Leonard and Walker might be the more likely candidates available at seven. Well, Jimmer Fredette will be available, but if Petrie takes him I may have to start rooting for the Warriors.
