Don’t look now, but the 2022 NBA draft is just over 24 hours away.

There are countless rumors currently flying around the basketball world about Sacramento’s fourth-overall pick, a selection that many draft experts and analysts have labeled as the unofficial ‘start of the draft’.

During Wednesday’s edition of Cattles & Ramie, Bleacher Report’s NBA insider Jake Fischer joined the program to discuss what Sacramento could do with the fourth pick, dive into the rumors that are currently surrounding Atlanta Hawks forward John Collins, and much more.

Topics discussed:

  • What will Sacramento do with the 4th pick in the draft?
  • Sacramento is telling opposing teams that they are ‘comfortable’ staying at fourth
  • Is Jaden Ivey the fourth-best player in the draft?
  • If Ivey is available at 4th, will the Kings take the talented guard, or go in another route by drafting Keegan Murray
  • What is the likelihood that Atlanta Hawks forward John Collins will be a King by tomorrow night?
  • The Hawks have a ‘clear goal’ to move Collins by Thursday night
  • Would Sacramento have to include the fourth pick in any negotiations for Collins?
  • Fischer says that it’s ‘unlikely’ the Kings trade their pick before the time comes to make a selection
