Kings Sign Marquette Guard Trent Lockett

Lockett played on Sacramento's Vegas Summer League Team.

The Kings announced today that they have signed Marquette Guard Trent Lockett to a contract.

Terms of the contract were not disclosed, but I would be very surprised if this is anything more than a training camp invite.  With Lockett's signing, the Kings are currently at 15 roster spots, but they can add more for training camp.  The deadline to cut down to the maximum roster size of 15 is before the season begins so there's still hope that the team brings back Cole Aldrich, even if it's just as a training camp invite.

Lockett played for the Kings Vegas Summer League Team and averaged 7.0 points (.464 FG%, .375 3P%, .545 FT%), 1.6 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 20.2 minutes a game.  He played 3 years at Arizona State before transferring to Marquette for his senior year.

I would be exceedingly surprised if Lockett made the team.  Sacramento already has Marcus Thornton, Ben McLemore, John Salmons and Jimmer Fredette at Shooting Guard.  Per DraftExpress, Lockett's greatest strengths are his athleticism and ability to create shots for himself.
