SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Former Cameron County High School standout Nate Sestina is part of the Sacramento Kings’ upcoming California Classic Summer League team.

The Kings released their roster for the three-day league on Thursday, which is headlined by Keegan Murray, the No. 4 pick in the draft out of Iowa.

Sestina was a member of the Utah Jazz Summer League team a year ago.

At Cameron County, Sestina was the co-District 9 Player of the Year as a senior in 2015 when he led the Red Raiders to a second-place finish in District 9 while averaging 21.5 points, 14.3 rebounds, 3.4 assists, 2.9 blocks, and 1.6 steals per game and shooting 63.4 percent from the field. He also recorded 26 double-doubles in 28 games and finished his high school career with 1,698 points.

Sestina went on to a four-year career before transferring to Kentucky to play for coach John Calipari in his graduate season.

The California Classic Summer League team runs July 2-5 at Chase Center, home of the Golden State Warriors.

The four-team, three-day format will include a doubleheader matchup each day featuring the Kings, Warriors, Los Angeles Lakers, and Miami Heat. Sacramento will play three games, beginning with its first contest on Saturday, July 2 against the Warriors, followed by a game against the Heat on Sunday and the Lakers on Tuesday.
