Sometimes, you just have to get creative to find a new solution.

The Kings need a new solution and something outside the box to get better, their GM Pete D’Alessandro decided that he would reach out to the analytics community through the internet to help decided who should be the #8 pick. Grantland was there to do a documentary on the process and give an inside look:

Sacramento Kings GM Pete D’Alessandro has reached out to the NBA analytics community for data analysis about whether the Kings should trade the eighth pick in the draft and who they should select if they keep their pick.

I’m not opposed to them thinking outside the box. More teams should use all the resources available to them to see if there are any fresh ideas out there. With that being said, I understand this seems a bit strange but sometimes you have to get outside of the traditional box.
