Cauley-Stein wrapped up his Las Vegas Summer League play averaging 7.2 points, 5.5 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game over four games.
The 7-foot-1 big man's summer league performance comes as a bit of a disappointment considering where he was just one year ago. It is understandable that many close to the Kings were expecting big numbers this summer after Cauley-Stein averaged 7.0 points and 5.3 rebounds per game during his rookie campaign. Although it would have been nice to see him blow away the competition, it still was just a four game sample. The former Kentucky standout is likely to see an increased role this season, especially if the Kings decide to part ways with star center Demarcus Cousins.
Cousins has lost upwards of 20 pounds this offseason, Jason Jones of The Sacramento Bee reports.
Cousins has reportedly spent the past two and a half months dedicating himself to hot yoga, an exercise regimen that involves practicing yoga in high temperatures. The big man's weight loss has been motivated by the upcoming Summer Olympics, in which Cousins is participating, but could prove beneficial in the NBA season next year if he can keep up the progress. The 6-11 forward averaged 26.9 points and 11.5 rebound in 2015-16.
Labissiere signed a rookie contract with the Kings on Friday.
The Kings used their third and final first-round pick on Labissiere, who declared for the NBA despite submitting a rather disappointing freshman season at Kentucky. It's expected that his skills as a rim protector and jump shooter will fit in better at the pro level, but he might end up spending most of his rookie campaign adding strength to his rail-thin seven-foot, 216-pound frame rather than making many on-court contributions. The big man averaged 11.0 points (on 45.8% shooting from the field), 5.8 rebounds and 1.0 block across 24.2 minutes during five appearances in the Las Vegas Summer League.
Richardson signed a rookie contract with the Kings on Friday.
Richardson, the second of the Kings' three first-round picks in the 2016 NBA Draft, is viewed as a developmental option in the backcourt and isn't expected to see much time as a rookie behind Arron Afflalo, Ben McLemore and Garrett Temple. The 20-year-old had an uneven showing for the Kings in the Las Vegas Summer League, averaging 8.8 points (on 36.1% shooting from the field), 3.8 rebounds, 1.0 three-pointer and 0.8 steals in 23.6 minutes per game over five appearances.
Papagiannis was one of the more surprising lottery selections during the 2016 NBA Draft, but the Kings' brain trust was enamored by the Greek center and believe he can contribute at the NBA level right away. He'll be eased into the mix by serving in a reserve role behind Willie Cauley-Stein and DeMarcus Cousins, and may even be asked to spend some time in the D-League during the 2016-17 campaign. Papagiannis recently took part in the Las Vegas Summer League, where he averaged 5.2 points and 4.8 rebounds across 20.5 minutes per game in his four appearances.
