A person with knowledge of the deal says the Sacramento Kings are signing Sim Bhullar to a 10-day contract, making him the NBA’s first player of Indian descent.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity Wednesday because the Kings are not expected to announce Bhullar’s deal until today, when David Wear’s 10-day contract expires.

The 7-foot-5, 360-pound Bhullar played two seasons at New Mexico State. He’s averaging 10.3 points, 8.8 rebounds and 3.8 blocks.
