Since joining the Sacramento Kings as an undrafted free agent last month, Keon Ellis is turning into a fan favorite among those that are taking in the team’s NBA Summer League games in Las Vegas.

Ellis, a member of the SEC’s All-Defense team last season at Alabama, has displayed non-stop hustle, defensive tenacity, and the ability to knock down looks on the perimeter during five appearances for the Kings this summer, was signed to a two-way contract for the upcoming 2022-23 season shortly following June 23rd’s draft.

During Tuesday morning’s edition of The Carmichael Dave Show with Jason Ross, the guys aired Jason’s sit-down with Ellis as the two discussed a variety of topics that included:

  • Ellis describes how meaningful it is to get a shot with the Kings
  • What is Ellis trying to establish during Summer League?
  • Ellis talks about what it was like to grow up in a very athletic family and how he came to the decision to fully commit to basketball
  • The road to the NBA: Ellis shares his path to becoming a member of the Sacramento Kings
  • Which aspects of Ellis’ game is he working on most during Summer League?
