Kings begin preparing for the NBA Draft

Kings basketball president Geoff Petrie and the rest of the front office staff and coach Keith Smart met with the following draft prospects today at the NBA Draft Scouting Combine in Chicago.

Alex Len (Maryland), Richard Howell (North Carolina State), Tim Hardaway Jr. (Michigan), Tony Snell (New Mexico), Deshaun Thomas (Ohio State) and Reggie Bullock (North Carolina).

The Kings will have 12 more interviews this week.

I did ask Petrie about his future and if he had a plan:

"Oh yeah, but I can't talk about it," he said.

There's still much to be decided for the Kings (such as who will own them when the season starts) but the front office is preparing for the draft as if they will be running the show next month.

No one has told them not to work, so they continue to work.

Petrie, Wayne Cooper, Shareef Abdur-Rahim, Mike Petrie and coach Keith Smart are all in Chicago.

Also, the Kings have until June 30 to make Tyreke Evans a restricted free agent (after the playoffs are over).
