Fan question from Joseph Gutierrez (to Kings GM Pete D’Alessandro): With Ray McCallum emerging as a solid player, will that have an affect on who we target in the Draft?

“I think we’re in a position to take the best player we can get. With that said, it certainly makes it easier in terms of having Ray emerge the way he has. We believed in him. Mike Bratz has been scouting him for three years, so we believe he’s going to continue to progress and get better. Again, right now we have 28 wins – matching last year – and our best-case scenario would have been 29. So we’re not in a position where I could say any position is covered. All the positions are covered, but we still only had 28 wins. I have to take the best player.”
