Afternoon reading: Lewis feature

Trevor Lewis’ career with the Kings had quite a start. On draft day, 2006, Dean Lombardi wrote down Lewis’ name on a piece of paper, folded it and initialed it. At that point, he had a gentleman’s agreement with Minnesota general manager Doug Risebrough. If the name on the paper — Lewis — was still available at No. 17, the Kings would make a trade to move into that spot. If Lewis had been picked, there was no trade. Well, Lewis stayed on the board, the trade went down and the Kings took him. The following six years have included some ups and downs for Lewis, but he now seems to be thriving in an unlikely role. My feature for this week takes a look at Lewis. Thanks for reading…
