The Sacramento Kings might be trying to bring in the best point guard out of the #NBA right now for next season’s campaign. According to SB Nation’s SacTown Royalty, there is the possibility the Kings’ front-office could pry on #Milos Teodosic from CSKA Moscow this offseason.

Elusive Teodosic

Teodosic, widely considered by many hoops experts as the best playmaker not playing in the NBA, remains the cream of the crop among point guards in the European League. Many NBA teams have attempted in the past to get his service, but the 30-year old Teodosic has been an elusive commodity.

SacTown Royalty thinks Kings front-office boss Vlade Divac can convince Teodosic to play in the NBA.

Before he landed his current job, Divac served a member of the #Serbian Olympic Committee. In short, the former Kings center has some sort of association with the CSKA Moscow playmaker.

Moreover, the Kings are also hoping that Bogan Bogdanovic – who is expected to begin his NBA career next season - could also convince his Serbian national and club teammate to jump ship into the NBA.

“And in many ways, it makes sense. Teodosic plays for the Serbian national team with Bogdan Bogdanovic, who the Kings are expected to bring over this summer. Kings GM Vlade Divac oversaw the Serbian Olympic Committee before joining Sacramento’s front office. On paper, it makes a lot of sense,” per SacTown Royalty.

Point Guard hunt continues

In case the Kings still can’t convince Teodosic to play ball across the Atlantic, Ty Lawson and Darren Collison are considered the veteran options at the point guard spot.

Both guards started 20 games for the Kings last season, and they bring in a ton of experience on the table.

Bobby Marks of the Vertical suggests the Kings should find a long-term answer at the point guard position. Thus, it only means they need to select the right playmaking prospect at this year’s draft, with Lawson or Collison serving as his mentor.

The Kings, who will likely be armed with two lottery picks (the Pelicans have 96 percent chance to lose their first-round pick), are looking at Dennis Smith Jr, De’Aron Fox, Malik Monk, and international prospect Frank Ntilikina as realistic options at the point guard spot. If they are lucky enough to land a top-3 pick (2.5 percent chance), the Kings could be looking at top-tier college playmakers like Lonzo Ball of UCLA and the consensus no.1 overall pick Markelle Fultz of Washington.
