The Sacramento Kings have launched what is believed to be the NBA’s first crowdsourcing program to help make a draft pick.

The Kings will seek analysis on players from the public and eventually select two people to be in their draft room on June 26. Essentially, the team is looking for amateurs to offer analytical advice for free, and in return they will be granted access.

General manager Pete D’Alessandro announced the program, what the team calls Draft 3.0, as part of a Reddit Ask Me Anything chat Friday. The team has launched a website where would-be analysts will be asked to rank draft prospects as well as offer their methodologies. Contestants can use information from publicly available statistical databases to create their systems.
