With the NBA offseason officially underway, the Sacramento Kings have work today. On this edition of the Return of the Roar podcast, Frankie Cartoscelli and Brenden Nunes dive into their potential routes to improvement.

General manager Monte McNair often mentions their three primary tools to work with are the NBA Draft, free agency, and the trade market. The guys dove into some of the highlights and specifics behind those three options.

Also discussed on this Return of the Roar podcast:

  • How confident are we about Malik Monk returning in free agency?
  • What teams are the biggest threats to pry him out of Sacramento?
  • Why it was the right decision to extend Mike Brown
  • Who should the Kings consider in the 2024 NBA Draft Lottery? Devin Carter? Dalton Knecht?
  • Is it time for Monte McNair to make a big swing via trade?
  • Our order of preference with Zach LaVine, Brandon Ingram, and Kyle Kuzma
  • And plenty more great conversation!

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.
