CHICAGO - The Kings have already met with the point guard from Duke.
Nolan Smith, the senior leader and ACC Player of the Year, is among the players the Kings have spoken with at the NBA Draft Combine.
Colorado guard Alec Burks, Kentucky guard Brandon Knight, Cleveland State guard Norris Cole and San Diego State forward Kawhi Leonard are also among those the Kings have interviewed.
Burks, Leonard and Knight are candidates for the Kings with the seventh pick based on early projections.
I still expect the Kings to address the small forward position in the offseason. Donte Greene is in the last year of his rookie contract. Omri Casspi would prefer to play elsewhere next season and the team might like Francisco Garcia best as a reserve.
Many want the Kings to take a point guard at seven. The guard most likely to be available at seven is Kemba Walker and at this point I can't see the Kings taking him. Someone like Smith or Cole would likely be available in the second round and be able to learn behind Beno Udrih.
