Former Arizona guard Mustafa Shakur will try to make a go of it in the NBA with the Sacramento Kings.
His brother, Mujahid Shakur, said Friday night that Mustafa will play for the Kings on their summer league team.
The Kings were one of the teams Shakur worked out with for the last couple of weeks.
Shakur and ex-UA forward Ivan Radenovic were not picked in Thursday’s NBA draft. Former UA forward Marcus Williams was the No. 33 pick overall, going to San Antonio in the second round.
Radenovic said he will play for the Los Angeles Clippers in the summer league.
“It was kind of rough,” Mujahid said of his brother’s night on Thursday. “He felt like he was better (than some players) and he had better workouts (than others).
“That made it even more difficult.”
But Mujahid said his brother is pleased to be playing for Sacramento, “where he’ll be able to fight for the backup position behind Mike Bibby.”
Bibby a former UA All-America guard, left UA in 1998 after his sophomore season.
