Russian shooting guard Dmitry Kulagin is receiving interest from the Sacramento Kings and is seriously considering coming to the NBA, a source told Yahoo Sports. Kulagin, 22, averaged 7.3 points, 2.7 rebounds and 2.2 assists for Russia BC Triumph Lyubertsy last season. The 6-foot-6, 195-pounder, who was not selected in the 2014 NBA draft, is no longer draft eligible. He could be signed as a free agent, though his NBA team would be subject to buyout terms from his Russian team. Yahoo! Sports

With the weakness of this year's point guard crop, Kulagin could reportedly very well elect to throw his name into the draft to see where he stands in the eyes of NBA talent evaluators. The way Ricky Rubio is playing in the NBA thus far surely won't hurt his draft stock, as the two share some similarities in terms of their style of play. DraftExpress.com
