The Kings have agreed to trade guard Ray McCallum to the San Antonio Spurs in exchange for a future second-round draft pick, a league source confirmed.
McCallum was a second-round pick (36th overall) by the Kings out of Detroit in 2013. He appeared in 113 games for Sacramento, averaging 6.9 points and 2.7 assists.
The Spurs are looking for another guard off the bench after losing Cory Joseph to Toronto in free agency. It was clear McCallum was not in the Kings’ long-term plans as they made point guard a priority in the offseason and reached an agreement with Rajon Rondo.
McCallum started 30 of 68 games he played in last season. He became a starter after Darren Collison was ruled out for the season with a core muscle injury and Ramon Sessions was traded to Washington. McCallum averaged 11.2 points and 4.3 assists as a starter last season.
He averaged 13.8 points and 7.3 assists in 10 starts as a rookie.
McCallum was also Most Valuable Player in Sacramento’s summer league championship win last July.
