Ranadive - who has an affinity for shooters - has apparently been high on Hield for a while, having attended his pre-draft workout.
Here is Kings GM Vlade Divac taking in Friday's Rising Stars Challenge that saw the Bahamas native explode for 28 points in the World team's 150-141 win.
Hield's averaging 8.6 points on a true shooting percentage of 50.2 to go along with 2.9 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 20.4 minutes per game in his first NBA campaign after being selected sixth overall in 2016.
The former Oklahoma standout, who earned Western Conference Rookie of the Month honors in December, has a long way to go to be anything like Curry, who's the reigning back-to-back league MVP, four-time All-Star, NBA champion, FIBA World Cup winner, and perhaps the best shooter ever.
No pressure, Buddy.
