Nick Minnerath-

Minnerath first became exposed to scouts when they came to see his teammate, point guard prospect Ray McCallum but left with Minnerath looking just as impressive. Minnerath averaged 14.6 points and 5.9 rebounds per game for Detroit. For teams looking for a forward with a jump shot that can have an offensive impact at the next level, Minnerath has become extremely attractive. He has had 7 workouts (2 with the Celtics).

Following Sacramento’s selection of Ben McLemore and Ray McCallum in the NBA Draft, get reaction from Ranadiv√©, D’Alessandro, Malone, Kings fans and more.
Before the celebratory evening drew to a close, the Kings nabbed Detroit guard Ray McCallum – a three-time All-Horizon selection and 2013 Horizon League Player of the Year – with the 36th-overall pick.

“(McCallum is) one of the classiest, classiest young men you’ll ever meet and a heck of a player,” said D’Alessandro.

The Lute Olson All-American led the conference in scoring (18.7 points per game) and steals (1.9), while finishing second in assists (4.5) and assist-to-turnover ratio (2.2) and sixth in field-goal percentage (49.1 percent).

As the Kings strive for all-around improvement, Head Coach Michael Malone believes both draftees will make a significant impact on the court and in the locker room.
