Kings recall rookie guard Ray McCallum from Reno Bighorns

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Sacramento's other rookie is coming back after a brief stint in the D-League.

Well, that didn't take long.

Barely a week after assigning Ray McCallum to the Reno Bighorns, the Kings have announced that they are recalling their other rookie guard.

McCallum played in three games for the Bighorns, averaging 22.0 points (.455 FG%, .308 3pt%, .667 FT%), 5.0 rebounds, 3.7 assists, and 1.3 steals in 38 minutes per game.  While the Bighorns lost all three games, McCallum was the team's leader in scoring in each game.

I wouldn't be surprised if this was the first of many such stints in the D-League for McCallum.  The team is on a long break right now with a couple more home games immediately after, so it's a good opportunity for McCallum to be in Sacramento practicing with the team.

From what I've watched of his short stint in the D-League, McCallum shows promise as a scorer, although he's a rather streaky shooter.  He excels in pushing the fast break, but could do a better job of setting up others.  He's extremely athletic and has a lot of potential on the defensive side of the ball when you combine that athleticism with his excellent size and length.
