Kings Targeting Tony Mitchell

The Kings, looking to fill out their preseason roster, would like to bring small forward Tony Mitchell to training camp, according to Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee (Sulia link). Mitchell reportedly drew interest from the Warriors and Knicks before going undrafted this past June. He'd likely be in line for a minimum-salary deal with little or no guaranteed money.

The 6'6", 23-year-old Mitchell, from the University of Alabama, is not to be confused with the 20-year-old, 6'7" player by the same name who'll be a sophomore at North Texas this year after flirting with early entry into the draft.  The Mitchell from Alabama played for the Kings in summer league, averaging 11.4 points, 4.2 rebounds and 2.4 assists in 22.8 minutes over five games, and the overall impression was a positive one, according to Jones.

The Kings currently have 14 players on the roster, all of whom have fully guaranteed deals, but GM Geoff Petrie wants to carry 18 players into camp. Presumably, that means the four signees will be fighting for one last roster spot, since teams can only have 15 players in the regular season.
