The Sacramento Kings drafted shooting guard Nik Stauskas of Michigan with their No. 8. pick. 

Stauskas was an All-American and the Big Ten Player of the year for the 2013-14 season, as he helped the Wolverines reach the NCAA Tournament's Elite Eight. 

Stauskas pulled off the rare feat of leading his team in scoring and assists. 

The Kings are in desperate need for scoring, and Stauskas can deliver that statistic.

With the future of Ben McLemore in Sacramento in question following trade rumors, Stauskas can be inserted in the lineup at shooting guard.

He's one of the best outside shooters in this draft class, and improved significantly between his freshman and sophomore years.

Defense is a questionable trait for Stauskas, but he'll provide a spark in the scoring department for the Kings next season.

Andrew Wiggins was selected by the Cleveland Cavaliers with the No. 1 pick.
