Kings Sign Point Guard Pooh Jeter

Well so much for the Chris Quinn idea. Today the Kings announced that they not only signed Antoine Wright (as mentioned below and broken by Tim Cowlishaw and Sactown Royalty), but they’ve also signed point guard Pooh Jeter to a one year deal. Inside Hoops was first to break the story.

Jeter has played for the Kings previously, although only as a 2006 summer league invite. The Kings reportedly have always had a bit of an eye on Jeter and he was a rumored summer league invite for this season, but ended up playing for the Cavs summer squad where he averaged nearly 15 points a game and 5.4 assists.

Pooh Jeter has spent the past four years playing overseas and also played for the D-League Colorado 14ers in 2006-2007.

No word on if the contract is fully guaranteed (doubtful) or if this Jeter could play shortstop for the Giants.

Update:

Looks like the contract is guaranteed according to DraftExpress. Thanks to khoffman3113 for the tip.

Also, the very gracious Pooh posted this on his twitter:

God is good all the time and All the time God is good. Dreams come true yall. Always Believe. And thanks for the messages. Tears of Joy!!
