Basketball: Jorge Gutierrez to play for Sacramento Kings summer league team

Former Cal star Jorge Gutierrez will play for the Sacramento Kings summer league team in Las Vegas, beginning July 13.

The 2012 Pac-12 Player of the Year and Defensive Player of the Year, Gutierrez will be joined on the Kings summer roster by the likes of first-round NBA draft pick Ben McLemore of Kansas and former UCLA/New Mexico forward Drew Gordon of San Jose.

The Kings gather for a mini-camp July 9-12 in Vegas, and open play the next day against the Dallas Mavericks.

Gutierrez played last season in Mexico and also with Canton in the NBDL. He played for the Denver Nuggets during the 2012 summer league.
