DeMarcus Cousins' frustration justified?

Since drafting Cousins in 2010, four of the Kings' six lottery picks were traded after playing one or zero seasons with the team.

Marc J. Spears The Undefeated

Are international NBA picks too risky?

Only 16 of the 30 players drafted in the first round were born in the U.S. (fewest since 1973). Eight of them did not play college basketball (T-most, 2003). The 2003 draft had eight such players, who have combined to play in zero All-Star Games.

Chad Ford ESPN Senior Writer 

The Kings (via Suns) take Kentucky's Skal Labissiere with the No. 28 pick. Happy for Skal. No risk this late in the draft. All upside. And if he figure it out, the Kings got a great pick here at 28.

Adam Reisinger ESPN.com 

A massive reaction from the crowd as Syracuse's Malachi Richardson comes off the draft board 22nd overall. Richardson is from Trenton, New Jersey, a little more than an hour away from the Barclays Center.

Chad Ford ESPN Senior Writer 

The Kings select Syracuse SG Malachi Richardson with the 22nd pick. Really good pick for them at 22. See, I can show the Kings love.
