2011 NBA Draft Picks: Sacramento Kings Pick Bismack Biyombo, Likely For Charlotte Bobcats

The Sacramento Kings have apparently completed their three-way trade with the Charlotte Bobcats and the Milwaukee Bucks. The Kings took Bismack Biyombo from the Congo with the seventh pick in the first round of the 2011 NBA Draft. Biyombo is not a player the Kings expressed too much interest in leading up to the draft, leading us to believe Sacramento is drafting for Charlotte, who liked Biyombo's athleticism and upside.

This means Sacramento will probably end up with the tenth pick. The Milwaukee Bucks will select for the Kings. Two players the Kings are interested in (Kawhi Leonard, Jimmer Fredette) will probably be available at their position, and it's likely that the Kings will take one of them. Expect Sacramento to take Jimmer, who the Kings management and coaching staff have expressed very high praise for as a basketball player.
