Rookie Nik Stauskas helps lead Kings to 2014 NBA Summer League Title

Canadian Nik Stauskas is barely a month into his NBA career and he already has a trophy to add to his collection.

The eighth-overall pick of the 2014 NBA Draft helped the Sacramento Kings earn their crown by playing a key role in the Kings 2014 Las Vegas NBA Summer League championship run with a 77-68 victory over Houston Rockets

The 6-foot-6 smooth guard played starter minutes (28.9 MPG) and averaged a shade under 10 points per game (9.9) in seven summer-league games. The Mississauga, Ontario sharp-rooter add no problem adjusting to the deeper NBA line  by knocking down 11-0f-23 three-point attempts (.478%) and 43.4 from field.

Here’s footage of Stauskas and the rest of Kings celebrating their well earned 2014 Las Vegas NBA Summer League title.
