The NBA Draft is exactly one week away.

During the latest edition of the Return of the Roar podcast, Frankie Cartoscelli and Chris Watkins gave their final predictions of what the Sacramento Kings will do with the fourth pick in the draft, discuss the latest rumors and do a re-draft of the 2012 class.


  • According to a report from ESPN’s Jonathan Givony, Purdue guard and projected top-five pick Jaden Ivey doesn’t view the Kings as a ‘preferred destination’.
  • The Washington Wizards are reportedly interested in making a deal with the Kings for the fourth pick. Washington is in line to pick 10th in the draft. Is there a trade scenario that can benefit Sacramento?
  • Final Mock Draft and bold predictions for what the Sacramento Kings will do next Thursday night
  • Re-Draft of the 2012 class (spoiler: the Kings don’t take Thomas Robinson in this re-draft)

The Return of the Roar podcast is a Sacramento Kings podcast hosted by Kings beat writer Frankie Cartoscelli and digital content producer Chris Watkins for Sports 1140 KHTK.
