Sources say San Antonio has agreed to a trade a future second-round pick to Sacramento for Ray McCallum to replace Cory Joseph

McCallum, 24, played in 68 games last season for the Kings, averaging 7.4 points and 2.8 assists in 21.1 minutes per game. While he showed some real promise at the end of the season, Sacramento didn’t see much point in keeping the youngster around with Rajon Rondo and Darren Collison on board, so Vlade Divac decided to get an asset, albeit a pretty awful one, out of it. A somewhat questionable move by the Kings, but one that shouldn’t hurt in the long run.
Now that McCallum is with the Spurs, he’ll probably blossom into an excellent backup point guard because that’s what happens in San Antonio. Getting the guard for a measly second-round pick is nice, and the Spurs have made some solid moves to help rebuild some of the depth that was lost by getting LaMarcus Aldridge.
