The Sacramento Kings looked across the country to find talent from three of college basketball’s bluebloods in Thursday night’s NBA Draft, using their three first-round picks on Kentucky point guard De’Aaron Fox at No. 5, North Carolina wing Justin Jackson at No. 15 and Duke forward Harry Giles at No. 20.
Jayson Tatum, Luke Kennard and Harry Giles are all expected to be first-round picks in the NBA Draft June 22, 2017, marking the seventh straight year Duke will have at least one player taken in the first round.
Justin Jackson is expected to become North Carolina’s 48th first-round pick in program history in Thursday night’s NBA Draft and the 16th under head coach Roy Williams. Tony Bradley could also sneak into the first round.
