The Kings hosted eight players for pre-draft workouts Monday that were made known to the media, but one player who might be an ideal fit with the Kings also visited the team facility. Arizona forward Aaron Gordon had what a team official described as an “impromptu” meeting with Kings management and ownership because he happened to be in the area. But it doesn’t appear to be a chance meeting. Gordon said in an online diary for Slam Magazine that appeared online Monday that his first team workout would be with the Kings. “Now, Sacramento is my first team workout. I think it’s going to be a little more relaxed. I’m just going to meet with a few people, get a few shots up and have a relaxed workout. They have the eighth pick and that’s kind’ve my range, so I want to see what they’re talking about. There’s a lot of good things going on in Sacramento. DeMarcus Cousins, Big Cous! Have you seen his highlights? He’s a beast. His highlights are some of the most fun to watch in the NBA. His highlights are crazy. My game could definitely develop from playing with him.” Gordon took “a few shots” but the team is not classifying it as a workout. ESPN reported Gordon worked out for the Kings.
