Kings Draft Rumors: Thomas Robinson A Potential Pick For Sacramento?

NBADraft.net's latest mock draft has the Sacramento Kings selecting Kansas forward Thomas Robinson at No. 5 overall in the first round. While a player like Harrison Barnes at small forward might fill a bigger need for the Kings, there is a high chance he will not fall to No. 5. This goes without saying, there is also a chance Robinson is not available at No. 5 either. Either way, the 6'8" power forward is one of the top prospects in the draft and the Kings would be crazy not to take a look at him.

A recent scouting report on NBADraft.net says Robinson is one of the "safer picks" in the draft and has the potential to become an effective pick-and-roll player. Combine Robinson's pick-and-roll skills with the point guard prowess of Isaiah Thomas and the Kings might end up with one of the best young duos in the NBA. Robinson will also add depth to the Kings frontcourt behind DeMarcus Cousins and Jason Thompson.

Here's a snippet of Robinson's scouting report from NBADraft.net:

High-motor forward that possesses the power/athleticism combination to be an effective player in the NBA ... Explosive leaper ... Doesn't waste any time collecting himself when he catches the ball around the rim

Robinson averaged 17.9 points and 11.8 rebounds per game for the Jayhawks last season.
