2011 NBA Draft Lottery: Sacramento Kings Recent Draft History

Not since the Chris Webber-Mike Bibby-Peja Stojakovic days have the Sacramento Kings had much success in the NBA. And with the pending move to Anaheim becoming closer to being reality, Kings fans have really been getting hammered the past couple of years. And when you talk about their history in the lottery and their subsequent picks the past 10 seasons, I don’t think it brings them any sense of consolation. Since 1985 Sac-town has been in the lottery 13 times in 25 years, a rather impressive feat, but they did have those glory years in the early 2000’s. Here’s a look at their last 10 draft picks:

2001: Gerald Wallace, Alabama
2002: Dan Dickau, Gonzaga
2003: No Pick
2004: Kevin Martin, Western Carolina
2005: Francisco Garcia, Louisville
2006: Quincy Douby, Rutgers
2007: Spencer Hawes, Washington
2008: Jason Thompson, Rider
2009: Tyreke Evans, Memphis
Omri Casspi, Israel (from Houston)
2010: DeMarcus Cousins, Kentucky

Pretty solid list, lost of names still on the Kings too. Only if they could’ve kept Gerald Wallace…
