After an absolutely exhausting month-long process, the 2022 NBA Draft has come to a close.
The Sacramento Kings used its prized fourth-overall pick on standout Iowa forward Keegan Murray, a move that has been received as mixed around the fanbase as general manager Monte McNair opted to select the 21-year-old over Purdue guard Jaden Ivey.
On the latest edition of the Return of the Roar podcast with Chris Watkins and Frankie Cartoscelli, the guys shared their reactions to the pick and recapped a largely uneventful night inside of the Sacramento Kings practice facility.
