Well hopefully like last year, we may get the wost spot possible but come away with the best player
Seriously. Memphis decided that they'll take Thabeet instead, and OKC said, "nah, I'd rather have JAMES FREAKING HARDEN next to Westbrook in the backcourt instead of Tyreke Evans." (that f**kin' kills me) I'd say that was a pretty big break.
As for what the Kings should do...
1) Don't overpay. This is a seller's market since there are a ton of teams with cap space. Just because you have cap space doesn't mean that you have to spend it. This free agent class isn't nearly as good as people are making it out to be. There are a handful of top guys, but almost no mid-tier guys. Hold on to your money and use it to pry a good player away from a team that's trying to create cap space via trade.
2) Draft Ed Davis. He's going to be a very good defensive player in the league, and has the size that you guys lack in terms of wide bodies. If not him, try to trade down and take Ekpe Udoh. Evans is a ball-dominant player (and deserves to be), and you need off-the-ball talent to compliment him.
