Around the NBA, many rookies are getting to meet their new teams for the first time after being drafted last Thursday.
For Skal Labissiere, that means making a trip across the country to meet with the Sacramento Kings, who spent the 28th-overall pick of the draft on the Kentucky Wildcats big man, something that's become common for them. He'll now team up with former Cats Willie Cauley-Stein, DeMarcus Cousins and possibly Rajon Rondo, who is set to hit free agency.
For now, Skal is in Sacramento as he gets introduced to the city, community and Kings organization. In case you needed any more confirmation that Skal is as nice of a person as you'll ever meet, watching him play ball with a little girl at the Kings' facility is just the sweetest thing you'll watch today:

Meanwhile, fellow Kings rookie Georgios Papagiannis was not as friendly with his camper:

Anyhow, Skal also apparently has a dog, Dash, who even calls his own little son.
Via the Kings' official website:
Dash is a Pomsky, a cross between a Siberian Husky and a Pomeranian. According to Labissiere, Pomskies "are good looking, smart and easy to train!"
Leading up to the draft, Skal was away from home a lot and he expressed how much he missed his favorite new pal on Father’s Day.
"My son is growing up so fast. My first Father’s Day ever and spending it without him."
Must love dogs!
