    Kings sign undrafted Guard Deonta Burton

    Burton played 4 years at the University of Nevada and went undrafted in June. He averaged 20.8 points on 47.1% shooting from the field in his senior year, along with 4.4 assists, 4.3 rebounds and 1.5 steals.

    It is unclear at this point if this is an actual signing or merely a summer contract for a training camp invite. The training camp invite seems more likely. Sacramento's roster is currently at 15 as they have not yet waived Jeremy Tyler or Wayne Ellington. Burton played 6 games for the Washington Wizards during Summer League and did not play well, averaging just 1.8 points, 1.3 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 16.7 minutes a game over 6 games, all while shooting a paltry 15.8% from the field. Yes, 15.8%. That's not a typo.

    The Kings could use a third Point Guard in the rotation, as right now the only players they have at the position are Darren Collison and Ray McCallum. It's possible that Burton could be that guy.

    I remember him from watching the pre-draft combine. The analysts praised his ability, but questioned the fact that Nevada had a bad record despite playing in a weak conference. I think they had him in their top 5 PG's in the draft and projected him in the early 2nd.

    If he does eventually make it, then I hope he triples that awful percentage

    It's just an invite. No way we sign him with terrible numbers like that. Plus, we still have 15 guys on the roster?? No way he's made the team already.
