NEW ORLEANS – Former Tulane men’s basketball standout Cameron Reynolds has signed a free agent contract with the NBA’s Sacramento Kings.

Reynolds received a guaranteed contract, including a spot on the club’s California Classic Summer League team and a training camp invitation with a chance to make Sacramento’s opening night roster. He is also guaranteed a roster spot on the Kings’ G League affiliate based in Stockton, California.

“This opportunity means the world to me because it shows what hard work can do,” Reynolds said. “If you stay with the process and keep a strong foundation, it shows how far you can go. This is a stepping stone for me on the way to achieving my NBA dream.”

Despite going unpicked in the 2018 NBA Draft conducted on June 21, Reynolds worked out in front of seven NBA teams in the weeks leading up to the annual event and his first was with the Kings on May 21. He also showed off his talents for the Los Angeles Lakers, Toronto Raptors, Atlanta Hawks, Detroit Pistons, San Antonio Spurs and New Orleans Pelicans.

The 2017 American Athletic Conference Most Improved Player of the Year as a junior, Reynolds concluded his collegiate career as Tulane’s all-time leader in games played (135) and tied for second in 3-pointers made (193). He ranks 14th in program history in scoring (1,370 points) and 18th in rebounds (605) as one of just 10 Green Wave players to ever amass over 1,300 points and 600 rebounds.

The Summer League begins July 6 in Las Vegas, before players report to training camp in late September.
