Kings sign DeQuan Jones to training camp deal, according to report

Douglas Jones-US PRESSWIRE

The Magic wing will compete for a spot in Santa Barbara.

DeQuan Jones will be in the Kings' training camp, according to ShamSports.com's Mark Deeks (who is now also an SBNation.com contributor!):

Jones, a 23-year-old 6'8 wing, went undrafted out of Miami in 2012, but made the Magic roster after a training camp invite. He played 800 minutes for Orlando, appearing in 63 games and starting 17. Jones is super athletic, but put up really mediocre numbers at The U and in Orlando despite being a top-25 recruit back in 2008. Yahoo!'s Marc Spears wrote a good story about DeQuan's path to the NBA last year.

As is the case with the other training camp invites, there's not much roster space. But if Jones elects to stay in the United States this season and opts for the D-League, the Kings can have him assigned to Reno where he'll remain in the pipeline. It's worth noting that Jones is from Marietta, Ga., where Bighorns GM Shareef Abdur-Rahim grew up.
