According to Fletcher Page of the Louisville Courier-Journal, Hawkins will be a member of the Sacramento Kings summer league team and will play with former teammate De’Aaron Fox, who was taken with the No. 5 pick in the 2017 NBA Draft.
Hawkins averaged 4.7 points per game last year while coming off the bench for the Wildcats. The senior guard was a favorite among Kentucky fans, and Hawkins returned the favor by writing a letter to Big Blue Nation.
In addition to Hawkins and Fox, the Kings also have former Wildcats in Willie Cauley-Stein and Skal Labissière.
The Las Vegas Summer League begins July 7 and concludes with the championship on July 17.
