NBA Draft 2012: Sacramento Kings 'Seriously Considering' Damian Lillard With No. 5 Pick

The Sacramento Kings are seriously considering drafting Weber State point guard Damian Lillard with the fifth overall pick in next week's NBA Draft after he impressed team officials during workouts, as Steve Kyler of HoopsWorld reports.

Lillard generally isn't considered one of the five best talents in this year's draft, but he's been moving up draft boards all year.

At the moment, the Kings already have numerous players in their backcourt, including Tyreke Evans, Marcus Thornton, Isaiah Thomas and last year's first round pick, Jimmer Fredette. One has to imagine that Sacramento would pursue a trade for at least one of aforementioned players if Lillard is ultimately the selection.
