Sacramento Kings Summer League Roster
SACRAMENTO - Former Sacramento State guard Cody Demps, who played for the Hornets from 2012-16, is on the Sacramento Kings final summer league roster and left with the team yesterday to compete in the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas from July 6-17.
Demps, a 6-foot-4, 185-pound combo guard, will wear jersey #39 for the Kings. He joins Eric Stuteville as the only two Hornets in program history to appear on an NBA Summer League roster. Stuteville played for the Kings in last year's Summer League.
Demps played in the Kings' organization last season, appearing in 45 games for the Reno Bighorns, Sacramento's G League affiliate. The Kings' G League team has since moved to become the Stockton Kings. In 45 games (26 starts) last year, Demps averaged 7.4 points, 5.5 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 24.8 minutes per game. He missed the final three games of the season with a broken wrist.
The Kings will play a minimum of five games at the Summer League event, tipping off tomorrow against the Phoenix Suns at 4:30 p.m. in an ESPN nationally-televised contest. Sacramento also faces the L.A. Clippers on Sunday at 8 p.m. on NBA TV before rounding out preliminary play vs. the Memphis Grizzlies on Tuesday at 3:30 p.m. The remainder of Sacramento's schedule will be determined once all 30 teams are seeded in a tournament-style format.
Demps raised his scoring average every season of his Sacramento State career, culminating in 12.0 points per game as a senior in 2015-16. He scored in double figures 38 times during his four years with the Hornets, and ranks among Sacramento State's all-time career leaders in numerous categories. That includes fifth in minutes (3,055), sixth in defensive rebounds (334), tied for sixth in starts (86), eighth in games played (114) and assists (286), and 11th in free throws made (242) and attempted (344). He started each of the final 85 games in which he appeared.
Demps, who graduated from Sacramento State with a degree in mechanical engineering, played one season of football for the Hornets in 2016.
