The Kings own the NBA draft's version of Mr. Irrelevant this year with the No. 60 overall pick. Well, the last time Sacramento had that selection, the player became pretty relevant.
That was eight years ago, and the Kings certainly hope to find another steal with the last pick in the draft. It won't be easy, but there's been a few solid returns in the past when slotted with the 60th pick.
Here are the three best NBA players ever taken with that selection.
Isaiah Thomas, PG, Kings, 2011
Oh to take a walk down memory lane.
Sacramento selected the point guard from Washington who was small in stature, but big in getting buckets, with the final pick of the 2011 draft. He instantly became a weapon as a rookie, averaging 11.5 points while shooting what's still a career-high 37.9 percent from 3-point range.
Thomas lasted three seasons with the Kings before being traded to the Suns in June 2014. He averaged 15.3 points and 4.8 assists per game in Sacramento before blossoming in Boston. With the Celtics, became a two-time All-Star and was fifth in MVP voting for the 2016-17 season.
Due to injuries, Thomas has bounced around between the Cavs, Lakers and Nuggets the last two seasons, and has seen his numbers significantly fall.
Michael Cooper, SG, Lakers, 1978
Cooper is the all-time wins shares leader for someone drafted No. 60 overall, according to Basketball-Reference. While Thomas is still playing, Cooper (52.5) has 7.2 more wins shares than Thomas' 45.3.
The five-time NBA champion only played three games as a rookie. He didn't even start a game until his fourth-year in the league. His real prowess was on the defensive side of the ball.
Cooper was voted as the 1986-87 NBA Defensive Player of the Year. The lanky 6-foot-5, 170-pound guard made the All-Defensive team eight times.
And he was no slouch on offense. Cooper spent his entire 12-year career with the Lakers, where he averaged 8.9 points per game.
Drazen Petrovic, SG, Trail Blazers, 1986
The Hall of Famer only spent four seasons in the NBA, but they were quite impressive. Petrovic averaged 7.6 points per game off the bench as a 25-year-old rookie, and was then traded by the Blazers to the Nets the next season.
It was there that his career really took off. Petrovic averaged 19.5 points per game in 2.5 years as a Net and is one of the most accurate 3-point shooters the game has ever seen. Over his four years in the NBA, Petrovic nailed 43.7 percent of his shots from beyond the arc.

Prior to his NBA career, Petrovic was a star internationally. He earned two silver medals and a bronze in the Olympics, and averaged 28.5 points per game for Real Madrid one season before being drafted by the Blazers.
Petrovic tragically died in a car accident in Croatia in 1993.
