Heading into the 2019 NBA Draft, the Sacramento Kings had three picks at their disposal - No. 40, No. 47 and No. 60.

With the 40th overall pick, which they acquired in a trade with the Portland Trail Blazers last year and one that was originally belonged to the Minnesota Timberwolves, the Kings selected Justin James, a guard out of Wyoming.

Then, the Kings selected Ignas Brazeikis with the 47th pick (one that originally belonged to the Orlando Magic), which they went on to trade to the New York Knicks in exchange for the 55th overall pick in the 2019 Draft and cash considerations.

As part of the trade, the Knicks selected Kyle Guy with the 55th overall pick (a pick that orginally belonged to the Houston Rockets).

With the last and final pick of the draft, the 60th (one that orginally belonged to the Milwaukee Bucks), the Kings selected Vanja Marinkovic out of Serbia.

The Kings will visit India later this year, in October, for a couple of preseason games against the Indiana Pacers in the first-ever NBA India Games at the NSCI Dome in Mumbai on October 4 and 5.
