OCTOBER 1: The Kings have agreed to a camp deal with Taren Sullivan, Jeremy Woo of Sports Illustrated tweets.
The undrafted 6’6” wing player attended Findlay, a Division II school in Ohio, and was the leading scorer at the G League player invitational.
Sullivan played all four of his collegiate seasons at Findlay and averaged 17.2 PPG, 6.0 RPG and 3.2 APG in 28.9 MPG as a senior. He also had workouts with the Cavaliers and Grizzlies, according to Woo.
Sacramento had an open spot on its 20-man camp roster after waiving Brandon Austin on Sunday.

Why is this news?
There are only a few hundred NBA roster spots available. When someone gets one, we publish a story about it.
This kid got mvp in the Men’s College All-Star Game at my annual event (Jump 25 All-Star Classic) in Columbus, OH last April. In the workout the day before, a former nba coach/player who has several Championship rings (10, to be exact), whom I had asked to come observe and share a few words with the group, saw him going thru drills and was like, “Who is THAT?” He could tell the kid was a cut above and certainly passed the eye test. He was surprised when I said the guy was from D2 Findlay. I told Sullivan he was on the right track. Seems like he continues to be!
