Kings coach Michael Malone believes Trent Lockett is a perfect fit for the new culture in Sacramento. And he’d like him to be around in some form.
“(Lockett) has a chance to make the team,” Malone said. “And if he doesn’t make the team, obviously we would love for him to be in our D-League system so we could continue to monitor his progress as he continues to mature and get better.”
The rookie guard was the only holdover among undrafted players from the Kings’ summer league roster.
The Kings hosted Lockett for a predraft workout before adding him to the summer league team, too. Lockett (6-foot-5, 210 pounds) averaged seven points for the Kings this summer.
“It’s been a great experience,” Lockett said. “I’ve been with the team and coaches since summer league. I think even back then you could really tell they were putting an emphasis on the culture and really changing things around here. It’s been enjoyable.”
