NBA Draft 2016: Sacramento Kings Draft Picks, Holes & Needs

It could be described as a major struggle to win for the Sacramento Kings. The team went just 33-49 this past season and will have another new coach trying to lead DeMarcus Cousins and company next season. The team has the No. 8 pick in the June 23 NBA Draft and may be looking to find a replacement for Cousins, who has rubbed plenty of coaches the wrong way with his attitude. Here is a look at what the Kings have ahead of them in the draft.
Before the draft, the team needs to decide if they want to keep Rajon Rondo around. Rondo averaged 11.9 points and 11.7 assists a game this season and still has the talent to be a dangerous player in the NBA. If he remains, the team won’t have to worry about the point guard position. Cousins averaged 26.9 points and 11.5 rebounds a game and is a dominant center. Will the team want to keep dealing with Cousins though as time goes on?
With that eighth overall pick, there has been a lot of talk about Providence guard Kris Dunn who could step in and play from day one. Dunn is a point guard and would replace Rondo if he leaves or he could become a second point guard on the floor with Rondo to begin with. Dunn is one of the most ready players in this draft and that’s exactly what the Kings need right now moving forward. There is already enough turmoil to deal with.
