Sacramento Kings sign undrafted forward Duje Dukan after successful summer league

The Sacramento Kings appear to have their stretch four, as they've come to terms on a contract with undrafted forward Duje Dukan.  Shams Charania of Real GM was first to report the deal.  Charania says Dukan's deal does contain guaranteed money, so it's possible this is more than just a training camp invitation.  However, just because there is some guaranteed money does not mean he'll end up making the regular season roster.  The Kings could end up waiving him and sending him to develop in the D-League with the Reno Bighorns.

Dukan spent four years at the University of Wisconsin, serving as primary bench big the last two years.  Dukan is a bit of a one-trick pony, as he's not a great rebounder for a big man.  However, he can stretch the floor.  Dukan shot 41.7% from three in five summer league games in Sacramento.  That's a skill the Kings can use.

We'll see if Vlade has other signings in mind, especially after Luc Mbah a Moute's contract was voided.  The Kings still have the Room Midlevel Exception available, which is worth about $2.8 million.  Aside from that however they can only sign players to minimum contracts as they have no more cap space remaining.
