Brenden Nunes of The Kings Herald joined Whitey Gleason and Chris Watkins Monday to recap the 2023 NBA Draft for the Kings, how Colby Jones will fit with the roster and other news leading up to free agency. Plus, is Jones a Donte DiVincenzo replacement?

All that and more on Chris & Co.

“I think of him as a Donte DiVincenzo [type],” Nunes said on the show Monday. “Just as a guy that is a little bit of everything…If that three-point shot goes down at the level it did this [past] year, I think there’s a three-level finisher. A guy that can shoot the three ball, he’s got a great floater, his touch around the rim is really impressive. And just all those connecting pieces that makes me think of that Donte DiVincenzo [mold].”

Additional topics discussed include:

  • Is John Collins to Utah surprising?
  • Brenden’s thoughts on Colby Jones on the Kings
  • Is Jones the new Donte DiVincenzo for Sacramento?
  • Where are the Kings with European prospect Sasha Vezenkov?
  • What would Sasha’s role be for the Kings next season?
  • Who are the Kings targeting in free agency?
  • Could Sacramento make a play for Brook Lopez
