The Sacramento Kings have signed former Orlando Magic swingman DeQuan Jones for training camp, Mark Deeks reported Friday.

Jones, 23, went undrafted out of Miami in 2012, but caught on with the Magic's Orlando Pro Summer League team, for which he averaged six points and 4.5 rebounds per game. He later joined Orlando for training camp and ultimately beat out veteran swingman Quentin Richardson for the final spot on Orlando's roster.

After his rookie season, the Magic elected not to make Jones a restricted free agent, but did invite him to Orlando Pro Summer League again. Jones averaged 4.2 points and 1.2 rebounds in just 12 minutes per game, and the Magic informed him after his final Orlando Pro Summer League appearance that he was not in their future plans.

Though not an especially productive player in Orlando--he averaged just 3.7 points and 1.7 rebounds per game--Jones gained something of a cult following for his high energy level; ability to make athletic plays, such as this alley-oop conversion; and defensive acumen.
