The 2017 NBA Draft was an exciting one. It was one of the most talented drafts we've ever seen, and the Phoenix Suns and Sacramento Kings were at the forefront of it. Both teams are at a very nice spot in the rebuilding process. They've got young talent and are going about it the right way. This game should feature a ton of points from both sides, as they each have some of the top offensive players from college last year. Here are a few players to watch in this Friday matchup.

De'Aaron Fox

De'Aaron Fox was the 5th overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft. Out of Kentucky, the lightning quick point guard starts his ascent to greatness in Las Vegas.

Fox was dominant in college, both on the offensive end and the defensive end. He makes his teammates better and can get up and down the floor in a hurry.

The Kings struck gold with Fox being available for them in the lottery. Fox was an instant starter as a rookie and should be able to show off some gifts of his in Vegas. What to watch from Fox is how he does in the pick and roll and how well he shoots the ball.

Josh Jackson

Josh Jackson is a name that was atop the rankings and mock drafts since he was a senior in high school. Jackson was selected with the third overall pick by the Suns and brings a ton of tools to Phoenix. Jackson has a super athletic build in which he brings a lot of promise to the table both offensively and defensively.

The main thing to watch from Josh Jackson is how he shoots the ball and how he does in isolation. One big criticism of his game in college was his lack of consistency shooting the ball. Look for him to play a lot of his offensive sets in isolation, where he can use his athleticism to his advantage.

Justin Jackson

Justin Jackson was the 15th pick in the first round by the Kings. The national champion and ACC Player of the Year out of North Carolina, Jackson brings a big veteran presence and quality NBA skills. Jackson is on the quiet side of things, where he is easy to manage and doesn't let the highs or lows of the game impact him.

Justin Jackson is very valuable for the Kings right from the start with the way he shoots the ball. With Fox having some issues shooting, his game early on will be to get his teammates quality looks. Jackson can knock down a three-pointer with ease and brings some sneaky athleticism to the floor.

These rookies all bring different tools to the table for their teams. They all have an area they excel at and getting to see that in action Friday night should be an exciting sight.
