Sacramento Kings Summer Roster
SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Sacramento State center Eric Stuteville, who recently completed his fourth and final season with the Hornets, is on the Sacramento Kings final summer league roster and will leave for Las Vegas with the team today for the NBA Summer League.
Stuteville, a 6-foot-11 center, will wear jersey #88 for the Kings. He could become the first Sacramento State player in program history to play a minute in the NBA Summer League, and will already be the first to appear on an NBA roster during summer league play.
The NBA Summer League takes place July 7-17 at the Thomas & Mack Center and Cox Pavilion on the campus of UNLV. The Kings will play at least five games, beginning with their first contest tomorrow (Friday, July 7) against the Phoenix Suns at 7:30 p.m. on ESPN2. A record 24 NBA teams will compete in three preliminary round games from July 7-11 before being seeded in a tournament running through the championship game.
ESPN will present all 67 games from Las Vegas across ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU and the ESPN App, including 35 games on its linear television channels. NBA TV will also air 28 contests. The Kings will play on NBA TV on both Sunday vs. Memphis at 7 p.m., and Monday vs. the Lakers at 7:30 p.m.
One of three players to start all 31 games for the Hornets in 2016-17, Stuteville averaged 11.6 points, 6.3 rebounds, 1.5 blocked shots and 26.8 minutes per game while shooting .632 (141-223) from the field. That field goal percentage was the best mark in Sacramento State single-season history. He scored in double figures 20 times, including six of the final seven games of the season
Among Big Sky leaders, the team tri-captain ranked second in field goal percentage, blocks per game, offensive rebounds per game (2.9), and 10th in rebounds per game. In conference play, he bumped his numbers to 13.2 points, 7.0 rebounds, 1.8 blocks and 28.8 minutes per game
The local product from Orangevale (Casa Roble High School) became the first center in school history to score 1,000 career points and finished his four-year career with 1,013 points. He owns the school record for most games played (125) and finished with 149 blocked shots, just three shy of the school record.
Stuteville ranks among the Hornets' top 20 players in 12 different statistical categories, including first in games played, second in blocks, tied for second in starts (91), fifth in rebounds (558) and blocked shots per game (1.2), tied for fifth in field goal percentage (.562), sixth in free throw attempts (368), 12th in minutes (2,599) and 14th in scoring. The 149 blocks were easily the most in the team's Div. I era (1991-pres.) and Stuteville never missed a game during his four-year career.
Stuteville graduated from Sacramento State in May with a sociology degree.
