The NBA draft lottery took place last night, with the league's 14 worst teams discovering exactly where they will pick at the June 26.
The Cleveland Cavaliers were the luckiest of the lot, nabbing the number one pick for the third time in four years, and while they will be looking to use it wisely other team's aren't so keen on where they ended up apparently.
According to NBA.com's Scott Howard-Cooper, the Sacramento Kings are looking to trade away their number eight pick in the hope of acquiring a proven NBA veteran rather than pinning their hopes on a future talent.
The move is another sign that the Kings are looking to win now, and follows the franchise's previous efforts to bring in experienced pros such as Rajon Rondo during the last campaign.
The Kings have taken part in the lottery for the past eight years but seem intent on bringing that unwanted run to an end next season instead of taking a young player who could prove himself in years to come.
At present the likes of Tyler Ennis (Syracuse), James Young (Kentucky), and Noah Vonleh (Indiana) have been spotted at number eight in various mock drafts.
