Tyler Ulis Adds More Point-Guard Depth For The Sacramento Kings

The Sacramento Kings recently agreed to bring Tyler Ulis into their organization. What does the young point guard bring to the purple and white?

The Sacramento Kings continue to go after Kentucky Wildcats. Not too long ago, the purple and white decided to make an offer to three-year point guard Tyler Ulis to play for their team this season in which he accepted.

During his days with the Wildcats, Ulis was a spark plug for their team. His best campaign was his last year as he averaged around 17 points, seven assists, and three rebounds per game and made around 43% of his shots from the floor.

Even in his NBA career, Ulis had success when playing his first two years with the Phoenix Suns. In that span, he contributed around eight points and four assists per contest. But just this last season, Ulis only got one minute on the court with the Chicago Bulls. His season ended early due to having surgery on his left hip.

What Does Tyler Bring To The Team?

This is a good signing for the Sacramento Kings. Even though Ulis probably will not make a big impact with the purple and white this season, he does give the team even more depth at the point-guard spot.

I could see Tyler being one of those players during training camp that could compete for a roster spot with the team on opening night which would likely give Yogi Ferrell, Kings’ current third-string point guard, a run for his money.

Overall, nothing wrong with this signing for the Sacramento Kings. It just adds even more competition when training camp comes along.
