SACRAMENTO -- The Kings aren't done building their roster just yet. Just three days before the start of training camp, general manager Vlade Divac announced the addition of point guard Tyler Ulis.

According to an NBA source, he inked a 1-year, $1.67 million deal with Sacramento that is partially guaranteed and is not an Exhibit 10 contract.

After a promising sophomore season with the Phoenix Suns, Ulis, 23, visited Sacramento prior to training camp last summer. Instead of signing with the Kings, he decided to join the Golden State Warriors, but that didn't last long.

Ulis was one of the last cuts for the Warriors and signed a deal with the Chicago Bulls in October of last year. He was limited to just one game last season with Chicago due to a hip injury.

Now healthy, he is ready for training camp with the Kings where he'll join a crowded point guard position in Sacramento that includes De'Aaron Fox, Cory Joseph and Yogi Ferrell.

The Kings liked the 5-foot-10 point guard during the 2016 NBA Draft and hope to continue his development in Stockton with their G League affiliate. He is lightning quick and is perfect for their uptempo style of play.

During his three seasons in the league, Ulis has averages of 7.5 points and four assists in 20.9 minutes. He's played in 133 games, including 58 starts. With his addition, the Kings' roster now stands at 20, including two-way players Kyle Guy and Wenyen Gabriel.
