SACRAMENTO -- The picks keep coming in Sacramento. After going big with the No. 13 and long with the No. 22, the Kings went big and long at No. 28, selecting Haitian big man Skal Labissiere.
After coming in as a five-star recruit, Labissiere disappointed in his only season at Kentucky. He is still considered a tremendous prospect, but he joins an extremely crowded frontline.
At 7-foot, 216-pounds with a 7-foot-2 wingspan, the 20-year-old big has a very similar build to last season’s first round selection, Willie Cauley-Stein, but he will need time to develop.
In 15.8 minutes a night, Labissiere posted 6.6 points, 3.1 rebounds and 1.6 blocks.
