Princepal Singh is part of the Sacramento Kings’ squad that went on to win the 2021 NBA Summer League. This makes him the first Indian in NBA history to be part of a championship roster at any level of the NBA.

The Kings dominated the championship game against the Boston Celtics, clinching the title with a 100-67 win on Tuesday. The 6-foot-9 forward made history for India after he scored on the Pick and Roll and won NBA Summer League Championship. The title also made the Kings the only franchise to win the summer league multiple times.

Earlier in the year, Singh had become the first-ever NBA Academy Global alumni to sign a G League contract and the first-ever NBA Academy India alumni to sign a professional contract when he agreed to a deal with the Ignite.
