I know in other discussions some people were concerned that the Kings would be bad enough that they were likely to win the lottery next year. I didn't think they'd be that bad but somewhere in the bottom 5. Now, with them having the 2nd pick this year, I'm not so sure they end up bottom 5 next year.
They will either get Ayton or Doncic. either one will make them better than a lot of the other bottom feeder teams this season. We could see that pick slide to 8-10. Still should get a decent prospect at that point but not as good a prospect as we had hoped.
hope I'm wrong, but if the Suns take Ayton as I suspect, Doncic seems to bring a lot of talent that the Kings really need and could turn them into a below-mediocre team from a bottom feeder.
Fox/Hield/Doncic/Jackson/WCS decent young starting 5. not world beaters but not complete stiffs either.
Bogdonovic, Skal, Koufos, Temple. not a great bench but as a team, could win their fair share against bad teams.
