Adding to this: Sources confirm the Kings have signed Vince Edwards to an Exhibit 10 contract. Edwards is 24 years old. He's a 6-8/225 small forward from Purdue. Averaged 11 points and 5.3 rebounds in the G League in 2019-20. https://t.co/gdi5APnwEd

Edwards was drafted with the 52nd pick in the 2018 NBA Draft by the Houston Rockets, and has primarily spent the last two years in the G-League. He played in 38 games with the Oklahoma City Blues squad last season, and averaged 9.2 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 45.9% shooting per contest. He averaged 5 three point attempts per contest, sinking 37.9% of them; a promising mark, given the Kings omnipresent need for shooting from the forward spots.
Edwards was a four year starter at Purdue, and averaged 14.6 points, 7.4 rebounds, 2.9 assists, and 39.8% shooting from distance in his senior year in West Lafayette.
An Exhibit 10 contract is a one-year, non-guaranteed minimum contract, but the Kings could convert that deal to a two-way deal or even guarantee the contract outright if Edwards impresses in camp.
