The Sacramento Kings are close to signing Wenyen Gabriel to a two-way contract, according to David Aldridge of NBA.com.
Kings on the verge of signing @WenyenGabriel to a two-way contract, per source. Undrafted after two years at Kentucky, but did some solid work for Sac in Summer League play.

The 6-foot-9, 215-pound combo-forward went undrafted last month after two years at the University of Kentucky, but played well enough for Sacramento’s squad in the Las Vegas Summer League to catch the Kings’ attention.
His numbers in Las Vegas were modest — 4.6 points and 3.8 rebounds in 11.8 minutes per game — but he displayed enough to impress the organization.
Gabriel is expected to spent most of the 2018-19 season with Sacramento’s G League affiliate, the Stockton Kings. The two-way contract allows him to spent 45 days with the Kings.
