ESPN 626+ SHARES
The Sacramento Kings have launched what is believed to be the NBA's first crowdsourcing program to help make a draft pick.
The Kings will seek analysis on players from the public and eventually select two people to be in their draft room on June 26.
General manager Pete D'Alessandro announced the program, what the team calls Draft 3.0, as part of a Reddit Ask Me Anything chat Friday.
The team has launched a website where would-be analysts will be asked to rank draft prospects as well as offer their methodologies.
Ultimately two analysts will be chosen to assist the Kings in making their pick.
