Kings did well in Vegas

The Kings are done with their second annual Vegas summer league, and the team’s only bad news was second-year swingman Francisco Garcia’s bone spur that will keep him off the court for three weeks. Rookie draft pick Quincy Douby – formerly a shooting guard at Rutgers – embraced the project of grooming him to run the point, though training camp in October will truly tell if he is capable of playing the new position this season.
Third-year shooting guard Kevin Martin flourished as he should. The comeback award goes to second-year point guard Ronnie Price, who had some rough moments early but finished strong (31 points against Dallas in the finale as the Kings finished 4-1). While at Utah Valley State, Price didn’t do much distributing, as he was expected to start and finish plays on the offensive end. He is a very capable defender, but needs to improve his passing game.
Former UNLV forward Louis Amundson – who has been signed to a partially guaranteed contract and invited to camp – was the surprise of the session for the Kings. Don’t be surprised if he is joined in camp by Justin Williams, the Wyoming shot-blocker who played well, and Eugene “Pooh” Jeter, the former University of Portland point guard who showed enough to impress the Kings coaches.
