The NBA Preseason will conclude in a few days and then we will be able to see the full-throttle Regular Season. In this game, De’Aaron Fox and the Sacramento Kings meet Russell Westbrook and the Los Angeles Lakers. More about SAC vs LAL Dream11 will be given below.
Lakers have lost all of their five preseason games, which don’t imply much. The record has no bearing on the regular season and it is a matter of time before Russell Westbrook, LeBron James, and Anthony Davis click with each other. If the team remains healthy then it is highly like that Los Angeles can run away with a championship.
Sacramento has won its all preseason games so far. Kings will be itching to make a Playoffs return, it has been a long after all. The promising guard Fox has sizzled fans with his scoring and playmaking abilities while there are other budding players in the team too. How will Sacrament fare this season?

De’Aaron Fox can swim in points and assists.
Anthony Davis is almost always influential on both ends of the floor.
*stats from the last game*
Anthony Davis (LAL)
Davis led the team in points during the last game. The PF is a glorious fantasy option as he can stack in points, rebounds, assists, and can also generate steals and blocks. He is an option for the Super-Player in the Dream11 NBA scenario.
De’Aaron Fox (SAC)
Fox led the team in assists during the last game, which is no surprise. The guard also led the team in steals. The youngster will be hungry for postseason action after stitching together a wonderful early career.
Russell Westbrook (LAL)
Russell led the team in rebounds and assists during the last match. The triple-double king is a fantasy players’ dream. Westbrook will be aiming for his maiden title with James and co.
Davion Mitchell (SAC)
Rookie Mitchell led the team in points and made three knocking down 6 treys. Fox called him “one of the best defenders” already in the league. He has also hit strides in improving his offense. Is Davion making a case of being a starter?
LeBron James (LAL)
James led the team in steals during the last game. LeBron need not prove to anyone that he is one of the best to ever do it; his resume is too wide for a brief description. However, his hunger will not satiate without adding his fourth ring.
Terance Davis (SAC)
Terance has made a strong case since last season for becoming a 20-25 minutes player. He has a wonderful offensive game.
Rajon Rondo (LAL)
Rondo is still a difference-maker and has already won a championship with the team. Can he emerge as the regular backup this season?
Metu led the team in rebounds during the last game. Can he get around 15-20 minutes this season?
Carmelo Anthony (LAL)
After being an all-around scorer, Melo has now become an off-the-catch perimeter shooter (ala Vince Carter/ Paul Pierce in later seasons) to close out his career. Despite that, he does like to hit his patented jab-step jumpers and drives. Will he start or play a sixth-man type of role for the Lakers?
Harrison Barnes (SAC)
Will he average around 15 PPG this season?
Austin Reaves (LAL)
Austin landed a contract with Los Angeles but will he get regular minutes?
Maurice Harkless (SAC)
A stretch-four who can help the Kings in extending the defense outside.
