Named Co-MVP of Summer League
The Kings won the Summer League championship, and Mitchell showed off his impressive two-way ability. His numbers -- 10.8 points, 5.8 assists, 1.4 rebounds and 1.0 steals in 24.8 minutes -- weren't especially gaudy, but he demonstrated what he's capable of in terms of fueling wins. Heading into 2021-22, Mitchell should be a strong option off the bench for Sacramento, though the team isn't exactly short on guards with De'Aaron Fox, Buddy Hield and Tyrese Haliburton.

Suspended for title game
Metu was not thrilled, to put it lightly, with Omoruyi taking a hard foul on a fast break during Sunday's game, and Metu responded by throwing a punch toward Omoruyi's head. Metu was ejected from the game, and he'll now be forced to sit out Tuesday night's championship matchup against the Celtics. Prior to the ejection Sunday, Metu put up seven points, seven rebounds, two assists, three steals and two blocks in 23 minutes.

Nabs two-way contract
Queta, the No. 39 overall pick in this year's NBA draft, put pen to paper on the deal shortly before he's scheduled to make his Las Vegas Summer League debut Monday versus the Hornets. The Kings currently have incumbent starter Richaun Holmes and offseason pickups Tristan Thompson and Alex Len ahead of him on the depth chart at center, so the shot-blocking big man from Utah State will likely struggle to find playing time at the NBA level as a rookie.
