Kings Bring In Carlton Carrington, Three Others For Pre-Draft Workouts

The Sacramento Kings brought in four prospects for workouts ahead of the 2024 NBA Draft, per Brendan Nunes of Sactown Sports 1140.Carlton Carrington, Pitt, NBA Draft

The list consisted of Pittsburgh shooting guard Carlton Carrington, Miami small forward Kyshawn George, Weber State guard Dillon Jones and Creighton guard Trey Alexander.

Of those named, Carrington is the prospect viewed as having the highest upside. A lot of NBA draft experts have him going in the first round. Sacramento owns the No. 13 overall pick, as well as the No. 45 overall pick in the second round.

“Pittsburgh Panthers’ Carlton Carrington is the prospect that sticks out the most, as the 6-foot-5 guard is ranked as a top-20 prospect across many sites,” wrote Logan Struck of Inside the Kings. “Carrington averaged 13.8 points, 5.2 rebounds, and 4.1 assists as a freshman at Pitt, and the 18-year-old’s potential is through the roof. If the Kings are looking to take a backup point guard, selecting Carrington at pick 13 or trading back a few slots to get him would be the way to go.”

George may also be a first-rounder.

“Miami Hurricanes’ Kyshawn George is another first-round projected prospect on the list, as scouts rave about his potential as a skilled wing. The 6-foot-8 forward from Switzerland could translate to the NBA game seamlessly,” Struck wrote.

“… Weber State’s Dillon Jones and Creighton Bluejays’ Trey Alexander are both second-round projected prospects, but they are highly skilled and could each be difference-makers. Either of these guards would be steals at pick 45, so if they fall to the mid-second round, the Kings could snag some top backcourt talent.”
