  • Kings' Davion Mitchell: Out of starting five

    Mitchell is not in the starting lineup for Thursday's preseason finale, Franklin Cartoscelli of Sports 1140 KHTK reports.

    Mitchell got an opportunity in the starting five Monday with Tyrese Haliburton out for rest. The rookie led the Kings in scoring with 20 points (7-12 FG, 6-9 3Pt) to go along with four assists, two rebounds and a steal in 32 minutes. There likely isn't a spot for him in the starting lineup to begin the season, but he will certainly have a significant role.

  • Kings' Davion Mitchell: Starting Monday

    Mitchell is in the starting lineup for Monday's preseason contest against Portland, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports.

    The rookie will get a chance to play alongside the Kings' normal starters in De'Aaron Fox, Harrison Barnes, Maurice Harkless and Richaun Holmes. Mitchell will likely start the year playing behind Fox and Tyrese Haliburton at the point-guard position.

  • Kings' Davion Mitchell: Scores 13 points in 26 minutes

    Mitchell finished Wednesday night's preseason win over the Clippers with 13 points (5-9 FG, 3-3 3Pt), four assists, three rebounds, one steal and one block.

    The rookie out of Baylor came off the bench while De'Aaron Fox and Tyrese Haliburton occupied the two starting guard spots. This is likely the role in which Mitchell will begin the season, but it's possible the Kings could experiment with some three-guard lineups throughout the year. While Mitchell is undersized, he enters the league with a sterling reputation on the defensive end. He may not be drafted in many season-long leagues, but Mitchell is a name to monitor over the first few weeks of the season.

  • Kings' Davion Mitchell: Named co-MVP of Summer League

    Mitchell was named co-MVP of the 2021 NBA Summer League along with the Nets' Cameron Thomas, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    The Kings won the Summer League championship, and Mitchell showed off his impressive two-way ability. His numbers -- 10.8 points, 5.8 assists, 1.4 rebounds and 1.0 steals in 24.8 minutes -- weren't especially gaudy, but he demonstrated that he's capable of fueling wins. Heading into 2021-22, Mitchell should be a strong option off the bench for Sacramento, though the team isn't exactly short on guards with De'Aaron Fox, Buddy Hield and Tyrese Haliburton.

  • Kings' Davion Mitchell: Taken No. 9 by Sacramento

    Mitchell was selected by the Kings with the No. 9 overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft.

    Mitchell is coming off a career season for Baylor where he averaged 14.0 points, 5.5 assists and 1.9 steals per game in helping lead the Bears to a National Championship. A hard-nosed defender, Mitchell plays bigger than his size and should be able to guard both backcourt spots effectively at the next level. Mitchell shot the three at an impressive 44.7 percent clip last season, but he hit just 32.4 percent of his threes in 2019-20, so there's some concern that his outside shooting may take a step back. Regardless, Mitchell will give the Kings yet another capable, two-way guard alongside De'Aaron Fox and Tyrese Haliburton.
