The Kings Are Getting "Completely Shunned" By NBA Draft Prospects' Agents

What's the one NBA team no potential draftee wants to get selected by? 

It appears to be the Sacramento Kings. 

ESPN NBA Draft expert Chad Ford is reporting that Sacramento has only been able to get one prospect ranked in his top 30 - Wade Baldwin, a point guard out of Vanderbilt - in for a workout. Ford also says that the Kings weren't able to get medical reports on most of the top 10 prospects in the class. 

They're being "completely shunned" by the agents of these prospects.

His full tweet:

Doing research tonight for Mock Draft 10. Based on all the info I can find, the Kings only got 1 prospect ranked in our Top 30 in for a workout -- Wade Baldwin. They didn't even get medicals on most of the top 10 prospects. They've been completely shunned by agents.

Sacramento is owned by Vivek Ranadive. Since he bought the team in 2013, the franchise has had four different head coaches. The Kings haven't made the playoffs since 2006. 

They have the No. 8 pick in Thursday night's draft. Be sure to pay attention to the screen when they're making their selection. The reaction from the draftee could be pretty, pretty good.
