As we inch closer to the 2024 NBA Draft, Carmichael Dave and Jason Ross are beginning to examine players who could be on the Sacramento Kings’ radar.

The Kings hold the 13th pick in the draft, meaning they could bring in a player to help the team from day one, whether by using the pick on a prospect or by moving the pick to upgrade the roster via trade.

For Sacramento, adding a floor-spacing forward or big should be on general manager Monte McNair’s to-do list, but that doesn’t mean he won’t pick the player he and the rest of the Kings’ front office believe to be the best available.

Today, Dave and Jason profile Colorado forward Cody Williams, whose NBA Draft stock rose during the Buffaloes’ March Madness run.

Cody Williams | SF | Height: 6’7 | Weight: 178 lbs | Age: 19 | Big Board: 11th

Stats: 24 games | 11.9 points | 3.0 rebounds | 1.6 assists | 0.6 steals | 0.7 blocks | 55% FG | 41% 3PT | 28.4 minutes

Topics Discussed

  • Brother of Oklahoma City Thunder forward Jalen Williams.
  • Williams’ length and smooth ball handling should fit nicely in the NBA.
  • Good on-ball defender and should be able to switch to multiple positions defensively.
  • Williams’ defense would add to an area of need for Sacramento
  • Weaknesses: Needs to get stronger and work on shooting form
  • Dave and Jason work on their own shooting mechanics

When is the next Sacramento Kings off-season date of interest?

The NBA Draft is now a two-night event.

Wednesday, June 26th, will act as the first night of the 2024 NBA Draft, where the Sacramento Kings will make their first-round selection (13th). The second round of the draft will be held on Thursday, June 27th, where the Kings will use its 45th overall pick.

Sacramento hasn’t had a first-round pick since 2022, when it selected Iowa product Keegan Murray with the fourth overall pick.
