The Kings will select SF Justin Jackson out of North Carolina with the 15th pick in the 2017 NBA Draft.
In 39 games last season, Jackson had averages of 18.4 points, 4.7 rebounds and 2.8 assists in 32.2 minutes per game on 51.0 percent shooting from the field (36.8 percent from three). The 22-year-old fills a major need for Sacramento so the pick makes a ton of sense for the Kings. Jackson was also named ACC player of the year last season with UNC and led his team to the National Championship.
