Donald Sloan, the undrafted Texas A&M product recently named to the Kings' Vegas Summer League, has signed a one-year minimum-value contract with the team, according to Mark Deeks of ShamSports.com. Sloan will make $490,180, per Larry Coon.
Sloan is now the fourth guard on the Kings' roster, and the 12th player overall, not counting Jon Brockman. In an open VSL team practice in Sacramento today, Sloan ran point on the "A team," which included Omri Casspi, Donté Greene, Hassan Whiteside and DeMarcus Cousins.
Sylven Landesberg and Dionte Christmas, two guards previously seen as having the best chance at making the Kings out of the summer, played together on the B team with Steven Hill, Lee Cummard, Tyren Johnson and others. Ryan Thompson, little brother of Jason Thompson, just arrived in Sacramento from Orlando Summer League this morning and didn't practice with the team.
Sloan averaged 17.8 points a game for the A&M Aggies last season, and was named to the Big 12's All-Conference first team. He'll apparently be asked to play point guard with the Kings' VSL team after primarily playing two-guard in college.
