Kings take Tyler Honeycutt at no. 35.

Tyler Honeycutt from his Kings visit

With the 35th pick in the second round of the 2011 NBA Draft, the Sacramento Kings select sophomore small forward Tyler Honeycutt out of UCLA.  Expected to go in the first round, Honeycutt slipped on draft day and was unexpectedly available when the Kings picked the first of their two second-rounders.  Honeycutt teamed with Jimmer Fredette workout here in Sacramento, where he was pitted against Tobias Harris of Tennessee.  More of a defensive-specialist at this point in his development, Honeycutt needs to work on his perimeter shooting and add weight to be successful at the NBA level.  But he was way too good of a prospect to pass at no. 35.
