USA Today’s Sam Amick reports that the Kings would be “thrilled” to land De’Aaron Fox with the 5th pick in the 2017 NBA Draft. Amick also mentioned that Sacramento would be “ecstatic” if Josh Jackson unexpectedly fell to them at No. 5 too.
The Kings are in a great spot at No. 5 as they are almost certain to land one of De’Aaron Fox, Jayson Tatum or Josh Jackson. Barring a big offer, Sacramento will likely keep their No. 5 pick and make a selection within the next hour.

UPDATE: Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee confirmed what Sam Amick reported earlier. The Kings are poised to keep their 5th pick, but they could still move No. 10 depending on the options available.
Last bit of chatter I've heard. Kings definitely keeping 5, 10 could be in play. This of course can change in the next 30 seconds
