We have reached the pivotal final two weeks building up to the 2021 NBA Draft. While the Kings are keeping prospect workouts under wraps, they can't stop potential draft picks from turning to social media to announce their arrival.
Moses Moody was first to post a picture of his Kings workout jersey on Friday, but he wasn't the only projected lottery pick to do so.
Texas big man Kai Jones posted the following picture on Instagram, announcing his visit to Sacramento.
Jones is an interesting prospect, especially for a Kings team that is in danger of losing their starting center in free agency. He's raw, averaging just 8.8 points, 4.8 rebounds and .9 blocks in 22.8 minutes per game for Texas, but he has incredible length and athleticism.
Measuring in at 6-foot-11.5, with a 7-foot-1.75 wingspan, Jones has the frame that NBA teams are dying to get their hands on. He hasn't figured out how to turn potential into production quite yet, but he looks like moldable clay for the right NBA squad.
The sophomore center is expected to be one of the first bigs taken in the upcoming draft after Evan Mobley, who is likely a top 3 selection. Jones might take a few years to develop, but he has an intriguing skill set.
Jones could be an option for Sacramento, especially if they choose to move down a few spots on draft night.
