Sacramento Kings sign Andrew Wiggins' brother, Nick Wiggins

The Sacramento Kings may not have drafted Andrew Wiggins in Thursday’s 2014 NBA Draft, but that doesn’t mean they came up Wiggins-less when all was said and done.

In addition to signing Sim Bhullar early Friday, the Kings also signed Nick Wiggins, brother of No. 1 overall pick, Andrew Wiggins.

A 6’6 shooting guard from Wichita State, the elder Wiggins didn’t get a ton of floor time and was more of a role player, averaging just over 15 minutes per game this season. Statistically, he wasn’t overly efficient on the offensive side of the ball and struggled shooting though did play solid on-ball defense. He was much more reliable offensively during his first season with the Shockers went he shot 43 percent overall and 41 percent from the three point line in two plus attempts per contest.

Wiggins will likely participate on the Sacramento Kings’ Summer League team and if he impresses, will likely be given a roster spot in Reno (assuming he doesn’t leave for greener pastures).

Despite the same bloodline, Nick Wiggins isn’t overly impressive on the court though his tenacity and grinding style of play would likely appease Kings fans in general.

It’s questionable if Wiggins will ever see the floor in Sacramento, but he’ll certainly see it during Summer League.
