SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - The Sacramento Kings have taken Michigan guard Nik Stauskas with the eighth overall pick in the NBA draft.

With many needs heading into Thursday's draft, the Kings opted for one of the top shooters available in Stauskas.

Stauskas is from Mississauga, Ontario, and followed top pick Andrew Wiggins as the second Canadian taken in the draft.

The 6-foot-6 Stauskas became one of the nation's most well-rounded offensive players, averaging 17.5 points last season on the way to winning Big Ten player of the year honors. Stauskas shot 44 percent from 3-point range in two years in college and improved his ball handling and defense in his second season.
