Sacramento Kings sign Emanuel Terry to Exhibit 10 Contract

The deal gives the Kings the ability to retain Terry with the Stockton Kings.

The Sacramento Kings are signing Emanuel Terry to an Exhibit 10 contract, according to reports.

Terry had a standout performance for the Kings in the California Classic and Vegas Summer League. His hustle and effort kept off the screen. It’s fantastic to see the Kings rewarding Terry’s play.

For the specifics of how an Exhibit 10 contract works I’ll defer to our own Tim Maxwell, who recently explained it in a mailbag:

Teams can carry up to 20 players into training camp, with the need to cut the roster to 15 before the start of the season. If the Kings liked a player in Vegas, whether he played for them or not, they could offer the Exhibit 10 one-year, non-guaranteed deal. The player will likely be cut, and they know that walking in, but it gives them a shot to make the full club, and if they are cut, they’ll be given a financial incentive, maybe $50,000 to stick with that organization’s G League affiliate. That sounds like a great deal for both sides, and it is a great deal for the player, but remember that the team doesn’t control that player’s ability to sign with another NBA club - it just lets them develop him on their minor league team.

In short, Terry will make some extra money and the Kings maintain his rights for the G League.

Personally, I’m happy we’ll be seeing him in Stockton. He earned a longer look from the Kings organization. Congratulations to Emanuel!

Anyone who put in the kind of effort in summer league deserves a camp invite. He was a top 5 player on the summer squad, and that includes the 5 other dudes who already have a guaranteed contract. Congrats.

He was a lot of fun to watch. I’m rooting for him to make it.

If nothing else, I’d gladly go watch him play for Bobby Jackson in Stockton.

I really liked Terry in SL. I think he’s a diamond in the rough and it’s great to see that this team is finally looking to add affordable depth from guys who are hungry rather than entitled

This whole 30Q series can be made easier and more pertinent by asking the same question everyday until an answer comes:

Day 1: When do we get Ben Simmons?
Day 2: When do we get Ben Simmons?!
Day 10: When do we get Ben Simmons?!?
Day Whenever: When do we trade for Ben Simmons?
Day Infinity: When does McGenius fleece Morey for Ben Simmons?
Day Infinity Plus One: When does Ben Simmons beg to come to SAC because he loves us so much?

Notice I mixed up the wording there to break up the monotony, but the essence is the same and isn’t this all that matters, a franchise defining event on the horizon that may or may not transpire? It is all any seriously discerning fan should care about, though I grant to be talked out on the topic and weary of the speculation and trade proposals is understandable. I have said my piece on the matter and await favorable resolution.

In the meantime there are two Qs of which I take tepid interest: (1) Does Off Night start alongside Fox and (2) who starts alongside Holmes? Lesser down my list of queries is (3) what kind of shape does Buddy show up to camp in, barring a trade. If he comes to camp leaned out, noticeably so, lean and mean, and a laser shooting machine, then I know he can resurrect his career. Then he will get to his spots like he did when he was good, as faint and distant memory though it may be.

Regarding Question #1, there are THREE reasons that the answer should be a YES.

We should want Davion assigned to the best opposing PG to start the game, set the tone, blow up playsets, frazzle and frustrate the best play initiator on the opponent, and that only happens if he starts. If Davion proved nothing in LVSL it is he is ready for Trial by Fire, to challenge CP3, Donovan, Curry and Ja. It would be the height of hypocrisy for this coach to preach the importance and value of defense then bring his best defender at arguably the most important position at which to have disruptive and relentless defense, at the point of attack, off the bench.

Fox is our best scorer, easily so, projecting 26-28 PPG. We can ask him to take his defense to an elite level while simultaneously lessing his burden of responsibility by teaming him with Davion to start games and halves. Then he can spend more time checking the less dynamic and speedy SGs, something he is prepared to do with his new muscle, put the clamps on them, and reserving energy to go off offensively. This is reason #2, to make the role of your best player more sustainable.

In the second unit with Buddy, King, TD and Marvin, in theory, who is the optimal faciliator and orchestrator to bring it together, to prevent fade from the first team? That guy is Ty, he knows the tendencies of his teammates, he is the master ringleader out of the pick and roll and break. I do not doubt Davion has prowess in this regard and will be a quick study, but Ty is more adept and confident to bring the pieces of the second unit together.

Then all three are on the floor to end halves and games. The counter to this argument is Ty earned his right to start off his rookie season. But he is still going to be a leader in minutes played, 30-33 MPG, so why not stagger his minutes with Fox to assure smooth execution every minute of the game? You say Ty deserves the starting nod and you would be right, but why prioritize the individual over what is best for the team? This coach is a clown and he is very much about the politics of playing time, so I bet he starts Ty over Davion. I hope to be wrong.

Regarding Question #2, I do not like the options next to Holmes. I do not like Marvin as a starter unless he comes to camp a completely new player, in other words, miracle required. I do not like HB at the PF, his scoring suffers and he is not a good enough rebounder. I sort of am okay with Metu starting, provided his rebounding numbers take a jump and his post defense improves. I am not saying it would work, but I would not mind to see Len at center, shift Holmes to PF. Your rebounding and interior defense is solid, I just do not know about your spacing. It is worth experimenting with, something this coach is adverse to.

Ben Simmons is a perfect seemless fit to fill the hole next to Holmes and addressing our needs for more defense, rebounding, post play, fast break devastation and playmaking on the front line. This why McGenius may need to get a little more generous laddling out the picks and swaps. How often does an opportunity like this come along get All-NBA defender at 25 at nadir of his trade value and who demands out and addresses just what we need?!

It would be different if Marvin showed signs, but his signs are fools gold. It is no different than the signs Willie showed, and the signs Woodard showed as a G Leaguer. You can see this phonies a mile away, the placeholders until the real talent comes along. Of course at the negotiation table you cannot be desperate or your counterpart will prey on that perceived desperation. But I think we are desperate to add Simmons, pretending otherwise until the deal gets done.

In meantime, we have Metu, Marvin, TT, Len, HB, a hodgepodge and smorgasbord of blah and meh. It is as unappetizing as a penitentiary cafeteria. Maybe Metu emerges , maybe Marvin plesantly shocks, maybe HB gets nasty and gobbles up the boards like a demon possessed, but these are dubious bets. It all comes together with Simmons, the Choker who needs a fresh start to forget the past and forge a bold new path, the Aussie prima donna who may need SAC as much as we need him.

Fun player to root for. Does the dirty work like Jack Cooley or Jon Brockman.
