SACRAMENTO - Former Indiana Pacers guard Orlando Johnson officially signed a 10-day contract to join the Sacramento Kings, a move first reported by News10.
Johnson, originally drafted by the Kings with the 36th pick of the 2012 NBA Draft before being traded to Indiana for cash considerations on draft night, did participate in the team's practice on his first day on the job.
Indiana released Johnson last week after completing a trade that sent Danny Granger to Philadelphia in exchange for Evan Turner and Lavoy Allen.
Johnson said signing with Sacramento feels like his career has come full circle in such a short time period.
"I'm excited about this franchise, about being here," Johnson said. "I really think I can help out."
