LAS VEGAS — Former Red Raider Jahmi’us Ramsey did not play much in his rookie season with the Sacramento Kings, but he’s turned some heads with his performance in the 2021 NBA Summer League.

Ramsey scored in double figures in each of the Kings’ five games, leading Sacramento to a summer league title.

He scored 16 points in the Kings’ 100-67 win over the Boston Celtics Tuesday, the game that clinched the title. He was the Kings’ leading scorer at 16.2 points per game.

Ramsey’s best game was the Kings’ opener, an 80-70 win over the Charlotte Hornets. He had a game-high 22 points.

The Kings took Ramsey with the No. 43 overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft. He appeared in 13 games as a rookie, averaging 3.1 points per game.

The Arlington native spent one year at Texas Tech, scoring 15 points per game in 2019-20.
