South Orange, N.J. — Seton Hall men’s basketball graduate Jared Rhoden (Baldwin, N.Y.) has accepted an invitation to play for the Sacramento Kings in the NBA Summer League.

Rhoden was one of the top performers in the pre-NBA Draft process, starting with his all-tournament showing at the prestigious Portsmouth Invitational where he averaged 15.7 points and 6.7 rebounds per game against some of the top college basketball players in the country. He then headed to Chicago where he shined at the NBA G League Elite Camp and earned a call-up to the NBA Draft Scouting Combine. Rhoden worked out for for multiple NBA teams before accepting the Kings’ invite to their NBA Summer League squad.
Rhoden was the linchpin for a Seton Hall squad that returned to the NCAA Tournament this season and registered its sixth 20-win season in the last seven years. He was named All-BIG EAST First Team, All-Met First Team by the Metropolitan Basketball Writers Association and was named to NABC and USBWA All-District Teams after finishing sixth in the BIG EAST with 15.5 points per game.
The guard ranks in a tie for 33rd in program history with 1,270 career points. Rhoden is one of only 12 Pirates to log more than 1,200 points and 600 rebounds in a career. He played on three teams that won at least 20 games, two NCAA Tournament teams and was a key contributor for the 2020 squad that won the BIG EAST regular season championship.
