NOTE: This is a series of articles written by individual authors, both in and out of The Draft Class. These are all part of The Draft Class’ NBA Re-Draft, in which all of the current 30 NBA teams are represented and will undergo a simulation through NBA 2K20, with the goal to build the best team over the next five years. All teams have already been formed through the snake draft. These pieces will break down why each team’s representative drafted the way they did, as well as the approach the representative had heading into the draft.

The Sacramento Kings have been bad for almost my whole life.
They had a run in the early 2000s, but that was over 15 years ago. The young players on the Kings now barely even remember that. With a team built on youth, the Kings are looking forward to being a contender for years to come. The intention is to create a culture of tough defense full of effort, as well as running in transition a lot on the offensive side of the ball.
We may lack size in the starting unit, but we drafted the tallest player in the league in Tacko Fall, who is also young enough to fit in our rebuild. We have surrounded our bench scoring pieces with strong and physical 3-&-D players who should compliment others like Anfernee Simons and Jordan Clarkson nicely. Combining youth, tough defense, and potent offense, the belief is that the Sacramento Kings are poised for contention for an entire generation.
