The Sacramento Kings are building their team around young players, and they officially added another one on Thursday.
According to CSN Bay Area, the Kings locked up second-round draft pick Ray McCallum. McCallum became the first player from the University of Detroit to be drafted by Kings, and he deserved to be selected. He averaged 15.9 PPG in his career.
McCallum was picked by the Kings in the 2013 NBA draft, and he was the 36th player taken. McCallum won Horizon League Player of the Year honors in 2013, and he’s looking to take his all-around play to Sacramento.
With the loss of point guard Tyreke Evans, the Kings could use some depth in the backcourt. Signing McCallum is the best way to ensure that depth, so this is a sigh of relief for the Kings.
