The Sacramento Kings introduced on Saturday their first-round draft choice, Willie Cauley-Stein, a center from the University of Kentucky.

Stein, who was drafted sixth overall by the organization in Thursday’s NBA draft, was on a day-long, meet-and-greet Sacramento tour.

“He’s somebody who can really help us improve our team,” said Kings executive Vlade Divac at the news conference introducing his new player. He said Cauley-Stein brings skills to help the team on both offense and defense.

“I just want to express how proud I am to be here in Sacramento, and I know it’s bigger than basketball here,” Cauley-Stein said. “I’m excited to get going and working and change the whole mentality to the team, and get a chance to meet the guys and get acquainted with the coaches. But most importantly, I’m excited to be here with the best fans in the nation.”
