The Kings could use a big guard, and Livingston would be a great fit for them. Livingston finally came into his own with the Brooklyn Nets last season, and will be a nice fit in the Kings' offense.

With the team looking to trade Thomas, that will leave room for the team to draft their point guard of choice: Marcus Smart. Smart is a big man who can run the floor and create his own offense, and he would pair up very well with DeMarcus Cousins and Rudy Gay.
