NBA Draft 2019: Kings Select Guard Kyle Guy With No. 55 Overall Pick

After trading back from the No. 47 overall pick with the Knicks, the Kings selected guard Kyle Guy out of the University of Virginia with the No. 55 overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft on Thursday night.

Guy, a three-year player at Virginia, was recently named the 2019 Final Four's Most Outstanding Player after leading the Cavaliers to the national championship. He averaged 15.4 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game as a junior, and shot 42.5 percent from 3-point range over the course of his collegiate career.

Sacramento brought Guy in for two pre-draft workouts, so the Kings clearly liked what they saw out of the 6-foot-2 guard. He'll provide depth in the backcourt behind De'Aaron Fox and Buddy Hield.
