Painfully interesting mini-movie from Grantland about the Kings’ GM crowdsourcing some of their draft analytics to get fresh ideas.
It’s a deep draft. But with my minimal analysis, I don’t seem a huge difference in player potential from the ~4-~20 range. The Kings have the 8 pick, right in the middle of the “really good, but not necessarily great” range. If they can identify some value picks toward the end of the lottery or the late first round, I think it makes sense to move down from the 8 spot if they can get 2 first round picks in return. But I doubt anyone will offer that. Looking forward to seeing what happens in the draft.
