Sacramento Kings: Chaos Ensues After Release Of Athletic Article

Early this morning the Athletic (subscription required) released an article that dove deep into the Sacramento Kings’ issues, including the 2018 NBA Draft, the opinions of ownership on the current situation, and how the franchise is viewing the hire of Luke Walton.

Ownership Wanted Luka Doncic

In the article by Shams Charania, Jason Jones, and Sam Amick, it states that the Kings’ ownership was an advocate of drafting Luka Doncic, but ultimately it was up to Vlade Divac to decide who to select. The Athletic mentioned a prior article in which it mentioned Divac’s reasoning behind the pick: Doncic was ball-dominant and would take the ball out of De’Aaron Fox‘s hands, which would ruin his development.
