Welcome back to the Sactown Sports Sacramento Kings mailbag, where we answer all your questions about the Beam Team and their potential plans for the 2023 NBA Draft.

When we last saw the Kings, they had returned to the playoffs for the first time since 2006, but unfortunately lost in seven games to the Golden State Warriors. News and storylines have been quiet since then, but with the draft just days away, we’ve gathered the crack staff at Sactown Sports to answer your questions about what the team may or may not do come Thursday.

This week’s questions include:

  • Do you think Kris Murray to the Kings is a real thing? – Eddy in Orangevale
  • If Kris Murray is selected by the Sacarmanento Kings in the 2023 NBA Draft, where and how would he fit in with the team? – Frank in Fair Oaks
  • Do you have a draft crush? – Tom, Midtown
