Kings select Davion Mitchell with the No. 9 pick 😤 @brhoops

C — Harrison Barnes
Davion Mitchell is self made.
And he never forgot where he came from --- brought Baylor's managers with him to the NBA Draft.
A National Champion.
Team I have my eye on tonight is Golden State. Could add Davion Mitchell to Steph/Klay/Dray and still have assets including: Wiseman/Wiggins/Poole/Oubre/Lottery pick to offer any team the best possible deal for any player/pick they might consider trading. #NBADraft
Don’t overthink it with Davion Mitchell. He’s wired differently than most prospects I’ve evaluated. He’s one player you can’t project solely off of his statistical profile & age. Going to bust through any preceived ceiling and win a ton of games in the NBA. Easy top-10 prospect.
The National Champ is going to Sactown! 🏆

With all this speed with De'Aaron Fox, Davion Mitchell and Tyrese Haliburton, the Kings gotta go Trips Right all season.
Nobody’s worked harder in the last 2 years to become a top 10 pick than Davion Mitchell. From the day he set foot at Baylor he’s exponentially better. Great story.
