You can't deny that Vivek Ranadivé and Pete D'Alessandro are taking full advantage of the NBA's D-League system.  So far this year they've already called up Quincy Miller and David Stockton on 10-day contracts and now it appears they're getting ready to add Bighorns forward David Wear to that list.

From ESPN's Marc Stein:

Wear was one of Sacramento's final cuts in training camp and had played for the Bighorns all season to date.  Wear has averaged 16.3 points on 47.8% from the field and 39.4% from three point range to go along with 7.4 rebounds and 2.6 assists a game for Reno.

Wear's twin brother Travis plays SF for the New York Knicks after making the team earlier this year.  It's unclear just how much of an opportunity that David will get to play, but judging by Sacramento's last two call-ups he will at least get a chance.

UPDATE March 23, 2015:

The Kings have announced the signing via press release

SACRAMENTO, CA ---- The Sacramento Kings announced today that the team has signed David Wear to a 10-day contract, according to Kings General Manager Pete D'Alessandro.

The 6-10, 235-pound forward is averaging 16.3 points (.478 FG%, .394 3pt%, .812 FT%), 7.4 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 30.0 minutes per game in 43 contests for the Reno Bighorns, Sacramento's NBA D-League affiliate. Wear registered career highs of 33 points (12 of 18 FG) on Jan. 3 at Los Angeles Defenders and has hit seven three-pointers in a game twice (Nov. 16 vs. Grand Rapids and Jan. 3 at Los Angeles Defenders).

The UCLA product will wear jersey number 31 and will be available for the Kings contest Tuesday night at Sleep Train Arena versus the Philadelphia 76ers.

The roster now stands at 15 players.
