According to Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee, the Kings would like to add veterans at point guard and small forward, as well as a big in free agency:
Kings ideally would still like to add a vet at point guard, small forward and a big in free agency.

These reports aren’t too shocking given the lack of veteran depth in all three of the mentioned areas. Frank Mason and De’Aaron Fox are the only point guards currently on the roster, and Justin Jackson is the team’s only true small forward. Sacramento does have plenty of big-man depth but Kosta Koufos is the only player in the frontcourt not on a rookie deal.
The Kings will have plenty of cap space to work with when free agency begins on July 1st, so adding veteran talent to help bring along some of the new draftees makes a lot of sense.
