04:44 PM ET 06.27 | The Sacramento Kings want Ben McLemore, and there's an unlikely shot he'll fall into their lap at the seventh overall pick, no matter how poorly his pre-draft workouts reportedly went. So the Kings are aggressively working to move into the top-5, and they might be able to work something out with the Phoenix Suns. Owners of the top-5 pick, the Suns might not like what will be available and could take a couple steps down the draft board. The Suns, after all, were one of the teams that watched McLemore reportedly struggle during a workout. Phoenix could get another pick as compensation while Sacramento has a better opportunity to go after a player it apparently covets.

Same is said about the Bobcats and Raptors.

Well.....McLemore DID drop to #7.....and the Kings DID snatch him up......didn't even have to trade up for him.

IMO, this is a REAL good pick for them!

The GOT their man. Now if they can keep him away from the DeMarcus Cousins until he gets his mind right, they should be ok. Got some piece they might be able to unload to get better, but the real question is do they have the stones to pull the trigger?
