The latest mock draft from the incomparable Draft Express has the Kings selecting Georgetown center Greg Monroe.
I’ve been touting Monroe as a Kings possibility since the middle of the season because I think his size and skill set would fit in nicely. He’s not a great defender but he’s also not a saloon door in the key either. His biggest question going into last season was his ability to rebound and he followed up his freshman season rebounding numbers of 6.5 per game and 20% rebounding rate with a stellar 9.6 boards per game and 29% rebounding rate in his sophomore year.
He’s probably not the last piece of the puzzle but he could be a very good building block. We’ll have more draft examination in the coming weeks.
