NBA: Sacramento Kings at Phoenix Suns Rick Scuteri-USA TODAY Sports

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.

The former Kentucky product has career averages of 7.5 points (.403 FG%, .280 3pt%, .808 FT%), 1.7 rebounds, 4.0 assists, 0.9 steals and 20.9 minutes per game in 133 career games (58 starts) over three seasons with Phoenix Suns (2016-18) and Chicago Bulls (2018-19).

Ulis, the 34th overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft, averaged 23.3 points (.392 FG%, .250 3pt%, .811 FT%), 4.0 rebounds, 8.8 assists, 2.0 steals and 33.1 minutes per game in four games (4 starts) for the NBA G League’s Windy City Bulls during the 2018-19 season.

Good luck to Ulis in his next NBA venture.
