Princepal Singh, an upcoming Indian basketball player, will continue to play in the NBA G-League as he was picked up by Stockton Kings, the affiliate team of Sacramento Kings. THe 20-year-old is only the third Indian after Satnam Singh and Amjyot Singh Gill to play in the NBA G-League.

Indian basketball player Princepal Singh will continue to participate in the  NBA G-League for another season after he was picked up by the Stockton Kings on Saturday. The team is the G-League affiliate of Sacramento Kings, owned by Indian American businessman Vivek Ranadive.

Princepal had become the first Indian player to be part of a championship-winning team in the NBA, when the Kinds had clinched the Summer League title. While in the last season, he had played for Ignite, another developmental team affiliated with the G-League. But the time spent there wasn't as fruitful for Princepal as he spent only 25 minutes on the court, in a total of four matches, scoring only nine points, and affecting four rebounds. 

Earlier, he had become only the third Indian to play in the G-League after the likes of Satnam Singh and Amjyot Singh Gill. Satnam had gone on to play for Texas Legends, a Dallas Mavericks affiliate, while Amjyot Singh Gill was picked by the OCK Blue, which is an affiliate of the Oklahoma City Thunder.
