The Kings went with one of the older prospects in the draft with the No. 9 pick.
Mitchell, who spent his junior and senior seasons at Baylor, is one of the oldest players in the draft. Mitchell will turn 23 years old in September.
The Kings’ decision to pick an older player in Mitchell suggests they wanted to pick someone with the potential to contribute right away, but given their lack of size on the wing and lack of a true star talent outside of De’Aaron Fox, the pick is definitely questionable.
