Tyler Ulis is getting another shot in the NBA, and he’ll do so with a fellow UK point guard.
On Tuesday, the Sacramento Kings announced they had signed Ulis to a contract. Terms of the deal have yet to be announced, but NBA cap expert Bobby Marks says it’s $1.67 million deal with some guaranteed money.
