Kings sign first-round pick Nik Stauskas

Updated: Wednesday, July 9, 2014 |

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - The Sacramento Kings have signed first-round pick Nik Stauskas (STOUS-kiss) to his rookie contract.

Kings general manager Pete D'Alessandro made the announcement late Tuesday night.

Sacramento selected Stauskas out of Michigan with the eighth overall pick in June's draft. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The 6-foot-6 Stauskas averaged 17.5 points last season on the way to winning Big Ten player of the year honors. He shot 44 percent from 3-point range in two years in college and improved his ball handling and defense considerably in his second season after taking over a major share of the playmaking role with the departure of point guard Trey Burke to the NBA.
