GLENN ROBINSON III SIGNS W/ SACRAMENTO KINGS
Six-year NBA veteran Glenn Robinson III has officially joined the Sacramento Kings via free agency. Represented by agent Jelani Floyd, he signed a one-year deal and will be an instant factor for an intriguing Kings team. Last season, Glenn averaged 12.9 points per game and shot 39 percent from 3 as a member of the Golden State Warriors.
Known to a loyal and adoring fan base as “GRIII,” the swingman took home the NBA Slam Dunk Championship during All-Star Weekend 2017 in New Orleans. Robinson’s past season was his best yet: he set his career scoring high at 25 points with the Warriors, only to match that mark after the trade deadline with the Philadelphia 76ers.
A burgeoning NBA talent and a committed philanthropist, Robinson brings tremendous value to Sacramento and its surrounding community. To get involved with or donate to his nonprofit A.R.I. Foundation, visit its website and follow along on social media.
ISAIAH HARTENSTEIN SIGNS W/ DENVER NUGGETS
Represented by agent EJ Kusnyer, center Isaiah Hartenstein inked a two-year contract with a player option for the second year. He now brings size, strength and dependability to the ascending Denver Nuggets, and joins a talented frontcourt with All-NBA center Nikola Jokić.
A classic rim-defender with instincts for the modern game, Hartenstein was drafted in the second round by the Houston Rockets, then spent some time in the G League, where he was Finals MVP with the victorious Rio Grande Valley Vipers. Hartenstein made his German National Team debut in 2017, and began his NBA career with the Rockets in 2018.
JAE’SEAN TATE SIGNS W/ HOUSTON ROCKETS
Twenty-five-year-old rookie Jae’Sean Tate is officially coming to the NBA. The free agent forward, represented by Daniel Poneman and EJ Kusnyer, has signed a three-year contact with the Houston Rockets.
The 6’4” Tate excelled as a member of the Ohio State Buckeyes. He led his team in points as a junior, and he finished as the storied program’s 19th all-time leading scorer. After college, Tate’s professional career began with the Antwerp Giants before he joined the NBL’s Sydney Kings. Tate brings maturity, professional experience and relentless dedication to the Rockets. His journey to the NBA has been far from traditional, but perhaps fitting for a player with unreplicable charisma.
JOSH GRAY SIGNS W/ OKLAHOMA CITY THUNDER
Received in a trade from the New Orleans Pelicans this offseason, Josh Gray has officially signed a three-year contract with OKC, with the first year fully guaranteed. The proud Louisiana native played college basketball at LSU and excelled in the Korean Basketball League. He has also played with the Phoenix Suns. On a two-way contract with the Pelicans and the Erie Bayhawks, Gray averaged 22.5 points, 7.3 assists, 5.1 rebounds and 2.4 steals in the G League last season.
TYRELL TERRY SIGNS W/ DALLAS MAVERICKS
The 31st overall pick in this year’s NBA Draft officially inked his four-year rookie contract with the Mavs. The $4.6m in guaranteed money he will receive through the first three years of the deal is equal to the 24th pick in the draft. He joins a promising young backcourt with Luka Dončić, and brings his lights-out shooting to last season’s most efficient NBA offense. The 20-year-old Stanford product impressed scouts during this off season's draft process – Terry gained about 20 lbs. of pure muscle through strength training, while USA Today reported that he set a record-high basketball IQ score in tests administered to incoming rookies.
KALEB WESSON SIGNS W/ GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS
After three standout years with the Ohio State Buckeyes, Kaleb Wesson is beginning his pro career with the Golden State Warriors. The 6’10” center followed in his father’s footsteps by playing for Ohio State — his dad Keith played for the school from 1983-87. Even better, Kaleb did so with his brother, Andre, as a core teammate. He led his Buckeyes with an average of 14 points and nearly 10 rebounds per game last season, while shooting a dangerous 42 percent on 3-pointers.
DEVONTE PATTERSON SIGNS W/ DALLAS MAVERICKS
Joining fellow Beyond rookie Tyrell Terry, Devonte Patterson has signed a contract with the Dallas Mavericks! A local Texas product with the earned respect of Mark Cuban, Patterson was the Southwestern Athletic Conference Player of the Year last season. He averaged 15.8 points, 6.4 rebounds and 3 assists per game for the Prairie View A&M Panthers.
