Sacramento Kings sign Ray McCallum to three-year contract

Ray McCallum has impressed at Summer League.

The No. 36 pick of the Kings is averaging 12.8 points a game, he can get to the rim and finish there (a rarity in Summer League), has looked like a floor general and had one big 23-point game. He’s had some rougher outings and is shooting just 39.5 percent overall, but you can see a quality young point guard in there. He belongs in the league.

The Kings thought that, too, and have signed him to a guaranteed deal, reports the Sacramento Bee.

The Kings announced they have signed second-round draft pick Ray McCallum. Terms were not disclosed, but a league source said McCallum’s deal had three years guaranteed.

Most likely that three year deal is for around $1 million a year.

The Kings are now overstocked at the point — they traded for Greivis Vasquez this summer, Isaiah Thomas has proven he can be a solid scoring point in this league and is the likely backup, plus Jimmer Fredette wants to play the point not the two. Throw McCollum in the mix and you don’t need all those guys at the one, so look for future moves (maybe not until training camp or later).

The good news for the Kings is both Thomas and McCollum are on very affordable minimum deals.
