2012 NBA Mock Draft: Sacramento Kings Take Bradley Beal, Will Barton

The Sacramento Kings look to continue to rebuild as a team in the 2012 NBA Draft, and they have two picks. One figures to be in a good spot after the NBA Draft lottery is announced, and the other will be early in the second round.

DraftExpress releases his latest mock, and it has the Kings taking shooting guard Bradley Beal from the Florida Gators. Beal would provide a new option at guard to complement Marcus Thornton and Isaiah Thomas if Tyreke Evans ends up getting dealt this offseason. Beal fits the more fundamental definition of the 2-spot and could be a player that greatly assists Sacramento becoming more coherent on the offensive end.

Will Barton of the Memphis Tigers is taken by the Kings with their second round pick. A small forward, Barton could provide more depth at Sacramento's weakest position.

To talk about Beal and how he would fit in on the Kings, head on over to Sactown Royalty.
