Dominique Hawkins is getting his NBA shot with a team already full of Kentucky Wildcats.
Hawkins’ high school coach, Allen Feldhaus Jr., told The Louisville Courier-Journal that his former player will play with the Sacramento Kings in the Las Vegas Summer League. This league will commence from July 7-17. If Hawkins does well there, he’ll earn a training camp invite from the Kings and perhaps other NBA teams.
If Hawkins makes the roster, he would team up with former UK teammates De’Aaron Fox, Willie Cauley-Stein and Skal Labissiere. Hawkins should actually play with Fox and Labissiere in the summer.
This past season Hawkins enjoyed the best season of his four-year career by setting new career-best marks in minutes, field goals, field-goal percentage, 3-pointers, 3-point field-goal percentage, free throws, free-throw percentage, rebounds, assists, steals and points. He was even named to the SEC All-Tournament Team after scoring a career-high 14 points in the championship game.
For the season, Hawkins averaged 4.7 points, 1.7 assists and 1.6 rebounds per game.
