05:57 AM ET 06.10 | The NBA Draft is right around the corner and while most NBA fans are focused on the NBA Finals, most teams and executives have centered their attention on making their teams like the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs. One way to get that good is to find talent and the Sacramento Kings are working out six players on Monday they hope can take them to the next level. According to Sacramento Bee reporter Jason Jones, UCLA star Shabazz Muhammad headlines a list of six players working out for the team on Monday. Jones reports that Minnesota Gophers standout and lottery hopeful Trevor Mbakwe will also be joining the workout as one of the six players the Kings have called in. But as Jones points out, the biggest name on the list of players scheduled to come in is Shabazz Muhammad who is seeing his draft stock fly all over the place in the weeks leading up to the draft. Once regarded as a top pick and most mocks at one time having Muhammad going to either the Detroit Pistons at seventh overall or the Minnesota Timberwolves at ninth overall, Chad Ford currently has the UCLA forward going 16th overall to the Boston Celtics -- which is outside of the draft lottery.

If he DOES fall at 16th overall to Celtics, that's a true lottery for Boston!!

He's a selfish player that needs a veteran team to help humble him.

Now I am starting to understand why the Kings have become perennial losers... Forget Shabazz...

Hopefully Kings' new ownership will do a better job leading up to and during the draft. Drafting T-Rob and trading him @ the deadline was a head scratcher.
