Bogdan Bogdanovic will undergo a minor knee surgery on Monday.

He was experiencing some left knee discomfort during Serbia's win over Estonia and that's notable because this is the same knee that he had surgery on (meniscus) back in April. The injury isn't as serious as the first one, but Kings reporter Jason Jones said he doubts we'll see Bogdanovic at all in the preseason. This puts his status for opening night in question as well, but hopefully we'll get a better idea of his timetable on Monday. In the meantime, move Bogdanovic down your draft boards and move Buddy Hield up a good bit. Expect to see more Yogi Ferrell as well if Bogdanovic misses time in the regular season.

Frank Mason III scored 16 points in Team USA's 114-57 victory over Uruguay on Friday night.

It was Americans’ first game of the second round of qualifying for next year’s World Cup. Mason also dished out a team-high eight assists and was nearly perfect from the floor, converting seven of his eight field goal attempts, including both of his 3-point tries.

Skal Labissiere said this summer has been his best offseason of his basketball career.

He's been on social media posting some workout videos and has been waking up at five in the morning to start his days. The Kings invested their No. 2 pick on Marvin Bagley III, so it sounds like Skal received the message that the pressure is on him next year. For now, we'd expect his playing time to drop with Bagley and Harry Giles set to start their NBA careers.

Marvin Bagley posted a video of himself throwing down a huge dunk during a recent workout.

Bagley's Summer League was cut short due to a pelvic bone bruise, and he was given a 1-2 week timetable in early July. It's now been well over a month, and based on how he looked in the video (link below), he doesn't appear to have any adverse effects from that minor injury. There is a bit of a logjam in Sacramento's frontcourt, with Zach Randolph, Harry Giles, Skal Labissiere and Willie Cauley-Stein all vying for minutes, but the Kings should give priority to Bagley's development considering they took him No. 2 overall on draft day.

Nemanja Bjelica will reportedly play for Serbia during the World Cup qualifiers.

Kings teammate Bogdan Bogdanovic is also expected to suit up for a Serbian team that will be without Nikola Jokic's services. Bjelica landed a three-year, $20.5 million deal with Sacramento this summer but faces a crowded forward rotation with little wiggle-room for fantasy value.

Nigel Hayes has reached an agreement with Turkish EuroCup team Galatasaray for next season.

Hayes, a University of Wisconsin product, played briefly for the Kings, Lakers and Kings as a rookie last season, averaging 3.0 points and 2.4 rebounds in 13.6 minutes.

Yogi Ferrell said he likes the style of play for the Kings.

"I think the main thing is I like their youth," Ferrell said about the roster. Ferrell had hinted that he backed out of his deal with the Mavs because he wanted to play more PG, and he is expected to compete with Frank Mason III for the backup job. Ferrell was primarily a shooting guard last year with a whopping 73.2 percent of his minutes next to at least one other point guard. With Mason III not really showing much in Vegas, Ferrell should have a chance to win the backup job. If the oft-injured De'Aaron Fox goes down, Ferrell could emerge as a fantasy add.

Jason Thompson has officially signed with Sichuan of the CBA.

Thompson, who last played in the NBA back in 2016 for the Golden State Warriors, spent last season playing for Fenerbahce. It appears his NBA days are over.

Jamel Artis has agreed to a training camp deal with the Kings.

It's reportedly a two-year, partially guaranteed deal, but with the Kings relatively thing at the small forward spot, he might be able to snag a regular-season roster spot with an impressive camp. He won't have any fantasy value, though.

The Kings are signing F Wenyen Gabriel to a two-way contract.

Gabriel played two seasons for Kentucky, averaging 6.8 points and 5.4 boards as a sophomore. He went undrafted but did enough during Summer League to earn a two-way deal. He'll spend most of the upcoming season in the G League, though, and isn't a fantasy option.
Jul 28 - 7:29 PM

Jack Cooley has signed a one-year deal with Italian club Dinamo Sassari for next season.

Cooley played last season on a two-way contract with the Kings. He appeared in seven games for Sacramento, averaging 5.7 points and 4.3 rebounds in 12.4 minutes.
Jul 27 - 1:45 PM

Iman Shumpert (left foot plantar fasciitis) has been cleared for 5-on-5 play.

The Kings posted a video of Shumpert getting in some work running full court 5-on-5. He looks good in the video, getting to the cup, making cuts and pulling up for jumpers. This should mean he should be ready for the year, so it's possible coach Dave Joerger entertains the idea of putting him in the rotation, especially given Joerger's affinity to play veterans.

Yogi Ferrell said he backed out of his deal with the Mavs because he "fits better with the Kings than the Mavericks."

"I was fortunate [the Mavs] were able to put me in the position that they were in," Ferrell said. "There were no hard feelings." While the Mavs reportedly promised Yogi he would be their primary backup shooting guard, he should have a much better chance for minutes as he could slot right into the PG2 spot behind De’Aaron Fox, and he could get minutes on the wing, as well.
Jul 25 - 2:40 PM

The second season of Yogi Ferrell's deal with the Kings is non-guaranteed, according to Tim MacMahon of ESPN.

After backing out of a deal with Dallas, Ferrell signed a two-year contract with Sacramento for a reported total of $6.2 million over the weekend. It seemed like a bit of an overpay, but the Kings keeping an option on the second season makes more sense. Ferrell will compete with Frank Mason III for minutes at PG behind starter De'Aaron Fox.
Jul 24 - 10:21 AM

Nemanja Bjelica has agreed to a three-year, $20.5 million deal with the Sacramento Kings, according to Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports.

Well, he ditches the 76ers here and he’s not going to Europe. Bjelica reportedly wanted a multi-year deal, so Vlade Divac gets another guy on the rebound today after Yogi Ferrell. Bjelica may play some SF after he proved capable last year, and he gives the Kings much-needed shooting.
