WATCH: Sacramento Kings rookie Ray McCallum’s 2013 NBA Draft Day

For NBA hopefuls, draft day can be anxiety-filled experience.  Ray McCallum had to wait 36 picks into this year’s NBA Draft before his named was announced.

“It was a fun and exciting day, but at the same time, it was nerve-racking. I stayed home and watched it with my family. I had to wait 4 hours and 10 minutes for my name to get called. It was a long night for me. But when I got the call from Pete and coach and everybody I was extremely excited. So happy to finally hear your name get called, especially to a great team, great organization, and somewhere where I knew I could grow as a player. By far, definitely, it was the longest 4 hours and 10 minutes of my life. I’ll never forget it.”

See how McCallum’s draft day unfolded in the following short film below.
