The Sacramento Kings shocked many fans and experts alike when they put Davion Mitchell # 9 in the draft, while Tyrese Haliburton and De’Aaron Fox were already considered guardians as pillars of the franchise. The most passionate question that skeptics have raised was the idea of ​​designing a player who can’t play big minutes alongside your two most important players.

But, is this really the truth? Could Kings management have taken the step with the idea that all three could fit together on the pitch at the same time?

The idea of ​​leaning heavily on a three-person line-up with Fox, Haliburton and Mitchell has become a hot topic of discussion among the Kings fan base, and the idea has apparently reached Luke Walton and the coaching staff as well.

“I think everyone wants to see the three guards on the square together and see what it looks like,” Luke Walton told the media on Wednesday.

Whether Walton is just talking about something that stays on the practice field, or whether he actually relies on it during the games, we won’t really know until the season begins.

In theory, Mitchell, De’Aaron Fox and Haliburton seem to go together. Ideally, Mitchell faces the best offensive player on the defensive, Haliburton the greatest and Fox the weakest offensive player, which would hopefully help him save energy.

If one examines the minutes further and assuming good health, the calculation that they have enough wake minutes to keep Fox, Haliburton, Mitchell, Buddy Hield, and Terence Davis all playing guard post roles, is not to give up.

There are 96 minutes of watch that must be rationed over the course of a game. Both Fox and Haliburton are both banned from playing more than 30 minutes per game, while Hield will likely need around 30 minutes per game while he’s with the organization.

This doesn’t even explain Terence Davis, who the Kings brought back after playing well for 27 games after coming to Sacramento.

The only way all these guys can play meaningful minutes is by having the three-guard line-up be an integral part of the team’s schedule.

The praise for Mitchell’s style of play and work ethic was a constant in the early days of training camp, so it would be quite surprising to see him play

Walton and the rest of her coaching staff will have their hands full when it comes to lineups and how exactly the minutes are divided.
