The NBA offseason may have just started, but for many of the game’s young players a new season is about to begin. The Las Vegas Summer League will tip off this weekend, and former Washington State guard Ike Iroegbu will be playing for the Sacramento Kings.

Thursday, the Kings announced that Iroegbu, a native of Sacramento, has been added to their 15 man roster for the upcoming tournament. The former Coug is coming off a solid debut professional season.

Ireogbu played for the Aqua Caliente Clippers, the Los Angeles Clippers G-League affiliate in 2017-18. Ike averaged 12.2 points per game along with 4.1 rebounds and 3.9 assists in his first season out of college.

The Kings are taking a roster full of college stars to Vegas including the no. 2 overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft, Marvin Bagley III.

You can catch Iroegbu and the Kings in their first summer league game Saturday, July 7 at 4:30 p.m. on ESPN. They’ll play at least four more games after that, all of which will be played on UNLV’s campus.
