Earlier today, former Kentucky forward Wenyen Gabriel announced on Twitter he was “Coming to SAC!” with an image of him in front of a Sacramento Kings backdrop.

Most assumed it meant he would play with the Kings for summer league, but no one knew for certain or the extent of the signing.
Now, Sacramento reporter Sean Cunningham is reporting Gabriel has officially joined the summer league roster, but whether he will stay with the team or not afterward has yet to be determined.
Kentucky's Wenyen Gabriel will be part of the Sacramento Kings summer league roster, according to sources. Beyond that remains to be seen.

Gabriel worked out for the Kings back on May 21.
We saw Derek Willis do the same with the Detroit Pistons last offseason, and he eventually played with the team’s G-League affiliate throughout the entire year. Today it was announced he has joined the New Orleans Pelicans for the Summer League.
Now, Gabriel will have to carve out his role in the summer league and hopefully earn a spot at training camp.
Best of luck, Wenyen.
