Kings Officially Lock Up Their Guys

UPDATE (Monday at 2:45pm) -- The Kings on Monday afternoon officially announced the signings of free agents Vince Carter, George Hill and Zach Randolph, the team announced.


The Sacramento Kings took care of some housekeeping Saturday afternoon when they officially announced the signing all three of their first round selections. De'Aaron Fox, Justin Jackson and Harry Giles are locked up and in Las Vegas with the team for Summer League.

Fox and Jackson played well in the team's opening night loss to the Phoenix Suns. Fox flashed his elite speed that he was known for at Kentucky, finishing the night with 18 points, four assists and five steals in 27 minutes of action. He is slated to start the season sharing time with veteran free agent addition George Hill at the point guard position.

Jackson lit up the Suns for 14 of his 18 points in the first half Friday night. The 22-year-old out of North Carolina has drawn rave reviews during the Kings' mini-camp building up to Summer League and will play minutes at the small forward position this season for Sacramento.

Giles was noticeably missing from the lineup against Phoenix. The 19-year-old big man played sparingly at Duke last season after undergoing knee surgery. While he is healthy enough to play, the Kings have decided to take it slow with the rookie first rounder, who suffered ACL tears to both knees during his high school years. He is not expected to play in Las Vegas this week.
