Fresh off their 2014 Summer League championship, the Sacramento Kings now have the tough task of deciding who they’ll invite to training camp. It seems justified that both Eric Moreland and Jared Cunningham will be extended an invite, but what about MarShon Brooks?
The former first-round pick who flamed out after his rookie season thanks to injury and poor shot selection is in the midst of a career revival and looks much improved. But will that be enough for the Kings to bring him into training camp? And more importantly, would he even want to come to the Kings camp given their current roster makeup? It’s something Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee has pondered.
Guard MarShon Brooks was also impressive, but he figures to have a chance of being invited to a training camp by a team that hasn’t used it’s last two first-round draft picks on shooting guards.
While Brooks would obviously be more than happy to participate in the Kings camp if he didn’t attract any outside attention, that’s just not realistic as the former Providence star should have plenty of teams lining up to bring him into their camp.
It’s possible that MarShon Brooks may see a future with the Kings and thinks he can etch out playing time over both Ben McLemore and Nik Statuskas, but the Kings will certainly have competition if they attempt to keep him in the organization.
