Video: A Behind-The-Scenes Look At The NBA Draft Experience For Nik Stauskas And His Family

For 60 players, last Thursday night was a moment when dreams came true, when years of hard work finally came to fruition. Nik Stauskas is one of those players. 

The former Michigan standout was selected with the No. 8 pick in the first round of the NBA Draft by the Sacramento Kings. In New York City to support Stauskas was his family, and his dad, Paul Stauskas, made a home video of the experience. 

Check it out: 

Stauskas left Ann Arbor as one of the best shooters the Michigan program has ever seen, making 44 percent of his 3-pointers during his two years with the Wolverines. He should be quite exciting to watch with the Kings, too. Sacramento has a talented crop of young players in Stauskas, DeMarcus Cousins, Ben McLemore and Isaiah Thomas.
