The Sacramento Kings today sent out a press release detailing the Las Vegas Summer League roster and schedule. Summer League starts July 13th for Sacramento and ends on the 19th, with 5 games being played in total.
Jimmer Fredette, Thomas Robinson and Hassan Whiteside are the only members of the current Kings roster that will be playing on the Summer Team. Tyler Honeycutt was supposed to play but suffered a fracture in his foot that will keep him out for a while. Former Kings big man Darnell "The Juice Man" Jackson, who played for the team in the 2010-11 season, will also be on the roster. The only other player with NBA experience on the roster is Forward Rob Kurz, who played 40 games with the Warriors in 2008-09.
It makes sense that Isaiah Thomas would not be playing in Summer League. Thomas more than proved last season that he can run an NBA team as a PG, and playing against Summer League competition isn't likely to improve him. It will also give Jimmer Fredette more time to practice the position. However, Keith Smart has said that he does want the entire team to come to Las Vegas to be with their teammates.
After the jump, the full Kings Summer League Roster and Schedule.
