ESPN reports the Kings have three separate offers for their No. 8 pick in Thursday's draft and are weighing them. 

The Sacramento Kings are fielding offers from three teams for the No. 8 pick in Thursday's NBA draft, sources with direct knowledge told ESPN on Monday.

Sources said the Kings have two deals that could be done prior to Thursday's 2 p.m. ET trade deadline to change the draft order and one would be a draft night deal, depending on which players are available when the Kings select.

The three deals would return multiple draft picks and a veteran player to the Kings for the No. 8 pick.

The Kings have been said to be looking at a trade for months now, out of the No. 8 spot. They're using a groupsource system to provide draft insight. They can move back and get approximate talent in the teens and potentially pick up another quality asset. 

It makes sense on one level, in terms of maximizing assets, but there are legit top-level possibilities at No. 8 who probably won't be there later. You can add the Kings to the list of teams that could make for a wild draft night Thursday.
