The Kings announced Wednesday that assistant coach Chris Jent will coach their NBA summer league team in Las Vegas for the second consecutive year.
The roster – consisting of young veterans, drafted rookies and rookie free agents – includes five players who ended the 2013-14 season with the Kings: Quincy Acy, Jared Cunningham, Ray McCallum, Ben McLemore and Derrick Williams.
Rookie Nik Stauskas, the team’s first-round pick and eighth pick overall in this year’s NBA draft, is on the team along with former first-round pick MarShon Brooks and Nick Wiggins, the brother of Andrew Wiggins, who was the first overall pick by Cleveland.
The Kings will hold minicamp in Las Vegas starting Sunday and running through July 10. Their first summer league game is July 11 against San Antonio at Cox Pavilion on the UNLV campus.
