SEPTEMBER 21: The signing is official, per RealGM’s transaction log.
The 27-year-old big man played for Sacramento’s G League affiliate in Stockton last season, averaging 13.0 points, 7.9 rebounds and 1.6 blocks in 32 regular season games. He was also part of the Kings’ entry in this year’s Las Vegas Summer League.
No details were given on Comanche’s contract, but it will likely include Exhibit 10 language. That will allow him to earn a bonus worth up to $75K if he’s waived and spends at least 60 days with Stockton. Exhibit 10 contracts can also be converted into two-way deals, but the Kings currently have all three of their two-way spots filled.
Comanche has been hoping for an NBA opportunity since going undrafted out of Arizona in 2017. He has played for three organizations in the G League and spent a season in Turkey as well. He signed with the Trail Blazers on the final day of the 2022/23 season, scoring seven points and grabbing three rebounds in 21 minutes during his NBA debut.
Once Comanche’s contract becomes official, Sacramento will have 18 players, including 14 with fully guaranteed deals. The Kings will be able to add three more before the start of training camp.
