CINCINNATI - The Kings announced today that they have acquired PG Bakari Kostur from the Blizzards in exchange or the Jaguars' 2nd round pick in the upcoming 2024 draft. Kostur is a third year player drafted by Minnesota in the 2nd round in 2021.

“We were happy with our point guard options but are constantly looking for Vickery’s successor and will try out as many players as we can,” said the Kings GM, “Kostur played well in a little over 800 minutes last year in the dumpster fire that was the Blizzards’ 2022 season, and our scouts think he has a lot of potential going forward.”
