Draft grades: 30 team evaluations
SACRAMENTO KINGS | GRADE: A-
Round 1: Ben McLemore (7)
Round 2: Ray McCallum (36)
Analysis: Kings GM Pete D'Alessandro has been on the job just nine days, but things are already looking up. Having McLemore, one of the two or three top talents in the draft, slide all the way to No. 7 was a godsend. The Kings wanted athleticism and shooting at the 2, and McLemore is a great fit. He has the chance, with hard work and greater confidence, to be the best player in the draft.
McCallum is a solid, no-frills point guard who might earn a lot more minutes if the Kings decide to clean house this summer.
