Because a Tony Snell mix is what we need right now...

Obviously we can't decide on how good this pick was until the season or at least summer league, but looks like he is also very athletic and has a decent handle (as some of you saw in the comments section the other day.) Also, Snell's agent says that the Kings had him rated at the #2 SF in the draft (behind Otto Porter, I assume, and NBADraft has them rated similarly with very good feedback on Snell- http://www.nbadraft.net/players/tony-snell). However, Sacto just couldn't justify the selection at #7 to the fans with the new GM, owner and coach. Interesting to note that despite Sacramento being where talent goes to die, they obviously do have a very good EYE for talent (Evans, Thornton, Thomas, Cousins, McLemore). Also here's something from his older brother from an article about his draft party: “The crazy thing about it is Tony was in love with Michael Jordan. He knew all of the Michael Jordan documentaries word for word. If we watched a Michael Jordan movie we could not shut him up. Him going to the Bulls, growing up that was his favorite team, it’s like wow this is really happening. He just came back from Chicago and he couldn’t express the feelings that he had playing in the same area that Michael Jordan was in.” You can read the full article here: http://blog.pe.com/2013/06/28/basketball-odds-and-ends-from-tony-snells-nba-draft-party/ (Sorry, link editor doesn't work on chrome for some reason)
