Let’s meet your 2016 rooks

Four days after a wild and crazy night at the 2016 NBA Draft, three Sacramento Kings rookies sat in front of an unfamiliar sea of reporters in an unfamiliar city, ready to embark on the next stage of their lives. Were they a little intimidated? You bet. But, Georgios Papagiannis, Skal Lebissiere, and Isaiah Cousins waited their whole lives for this moment and were not going to let a little thing like an introductory press conference scare them off.

    Nate WashburnOnce again, it looks like Vlade Divac is holding to his word of if you don’t want to come to Sacramento, we don’t want you. Earlier in the day, it was reported that the Kings dealt disgruntled shooting Guard Marco Belinelli to the Charlotte Hornets for the 22nd overall pick. They followed up that move by turning their 8th pick into the 13th and 28th pick along with the rights to Serbian sharp-shooter Bogdan Bogdanovic. Only one player in the projected top 30 (Wade Baldwin) actually worked out for the team and that was enough to convince Divac that he didn’t want to waste his time with players and agents who didn’t want to be in Sac. They ended up picking Greek center Georgios Papagiannis at number 13, a foreign born player that wasn’t on anyone’s radar. Although, it should be noted that Peja Stojakovic has very close ties to Greek basketball and I am sure he was well scouted. They didn’t just pick his name out of a hat. Going back to Marco, it was recently noted that he all but admitted that he took the Kings deal for the money and always had planned to find a way out of Sac. If you don’t want to be here, we don’t want you here!
