    This isn't a good look for you, man. No sense pissing on the dude's parade. The guy is believed in his cousin and watched him live out his dream. He has a right to be proud.

    It’s an online forum, I couldn’t care less what is a good look for me or not. I don’t care about him or his cousin, but he deserves to get hate back for the bs he spits

    In the 2019 NBA Draft, the Sacramento Kings drafted Justin James with the 40th pick. Can he become a contributor for the purple and white?

    In the 2019 NBA Draft, the Sacramento Kings used their first second-round pick on Justin James from the University of Wyoming.

    Per league source, Justin James’ new contract with the Sacramento Kings is a 3-year league minimum deal (3-yr, $4.2 million) with the first two seasons guaranteed.

    What does this mean for Sacramento?
    Based on the amount of guaranteed money James got, it shows how much confidence the Kings have in him going forward. But when the Kings decided to select James with the 40th pick, it did cause some controversy within the team’s community.

    For the fans that did not like the acquisition, it was because they thought there were other players available that were better than James. Also, the fact that the Kings selected another two guard did not please the team’s fanbase either.

    But for people who did like the acquisition, they believed that the production James contributed while with the Wyoming Cowboys could translate somewhat to the NBA while with the purple and white.

    To me, there are points that I agree with on both sides which is why I am writing this piece. Let me explain how I believe Justin James can be a contributor for the Kings right now but also mention the aspects of the game that the rookie can work on going forward.

    What can Justin provide already for the Kings?

    Justin James is an intriguing prospect because he can score in multiple ways. He is a 6’7″ guard, similar to Klay Thompson, who can score off the dribble and does provide a little bit of playmaking which he displayed during his limited time in summer league.

    He improved every year during his time at Wyoming averaging over 22 points per game in his final season. But his three-point percentage dipped to around 30%.

    In Las Vegas, Justin proved more of the same of how he can find creative ways to score. He seems to fit in the fast-paced offense the Kings are trying to run, scoring on multiple fastbreaks when he was playing against teams in summer league. He also has athleticism and strength by finishing dunks and And-1 baskets.

    James can also provide defense for the Kings. As shown in this clip, Justin gets a chance to swipe the ball and complete a steal, resulting in a fastbreak score.

    In his summer league game against the Houston Rockets, Justin showed why he could be much more of a force on defense rather than just creating steals. He moves his feet on defense smooth and does not let his opponent get past him resulting in a block and a turnover. He has shown this kind of movement on defense throughout his Kings tenure so far.
