Grantland takes you behind the scenes as Sacramento Kings owner Vivek Ranadivé, general manager Pete D’Alessandro, and advisors Mitch Richmond and Chris Mullin make draft-day decisions in consultation with selected members of the NBA analytics community. Cameras capture their deliberations as they consider moving up to select Joel Embiid, look hard at Elfrid Payton, and ultimately select Nik Stauskas with the eighth pick to boost the team’s perimeter shooting.
