Need: Rotation players

Not needed: Shooting guards

The Sacramento Kings were the breakout team of the 2018-19 NBA regular season, with their inspiring performances almost getting them to the playoffs. The Kings have a really young team that will only get better and they will look to strengthen their bench with the 2019 NBA Draft coming up.

The Kings gave up their #14 first round pick to the Philadelphia 76ers in 2015, who gave it up to the Boston Celtics, who now hold it. The Kings have the #40, #47 and #60 pick of the 2019 draft and could look to move up in the draft.

They can trade two or all of their picks to potentially end up either at the top of the second round or the end of the first round. The Kings have a really solid frontcourt in Harrison Barnes, Marvin Bagley III and Harry Giles while a backcourt of De'Aaron Fox and Buddy Hield is set to make an impact in the NBA in the near future.

The Kings need to solidify their rotation with players such as Eric Paschall from Villanova, Kyle Guy from Virginia and Jalen McDaniels from San Diego State if they keep their picks.

The Kings can potentially go up to early second round after a trade and they might be able to get Darius Bazley, who skipped college or Talen Horton-Tucker, a solid forward from Iowa State.
