Report: Kings interested in Russian guard Dmitry Kulagin
Sacramento is reportedly considering going after Dmitry Kulagin, who went undrafted this year.
A creative, 6-foot-6 playmaker, Kulagin has been fun to watch in international competition over the past few years. His stock has fallen drastically in NBA circles, though, and he went undrafted in June.
If the Kings sign the The 22-year-old as a free agent, they will need to reach a buyout agreement. Kulagin spent last season with BC Triumph Lyubertsy, and is still under contract with the club, which has since been renamed B.C. Zenit Saint Petersburg.
Kulagin averaged 7.3 points, 2.7 rebounds and 2.4 assists last year, shooting 42 percent from the field and 30 percent from the 3-point line. Sacramento definitely needs more playmakers, but it's unclear how much he would be able to contribute right away.
