ADVICE COLUMN

If the Sacramento Kings seemed clueless as to what to do with Jimmer Fredette, consider this: they are now seeking public input on their June draft pick.

In a promotion the team is calling Draft 3.0, fans are encouraged to share their own analytics and rank their draft preferences. In return, two winners will be “considered” for admission to the draft room on June 26.

Here is Rock On’s sole analytic, which the Kings can take to the bank: Don’t draft a 3-point scorer unless you plan to use him.
