Former Cal State Fullerton guard Josh Akognon set the pace in the Kings' second of five Summer League games, leading all scorers with 25 points in 21 minutes in the 84-72 win over the Los Angeles Lakers.

Akognon scored 15 points in Friday's loss.

Thomas Robinson, who the Kings drafted with the fifth overall pick last month, made headlines for all the wrong reasons for his curt interview that followed his eight-turnover debut in the NBA Summer League Friday.

Robinson rebounded Saturday with 14 points and 12 rebounds, committing three turnovers. He played 27 minutes.

Jimmer Fredette scored 15 points, but he did so on 3-of-11 shooting. He was 1-for-6 from distance.

Hassan Whiteside, the only other player currently on the Kings roster, started at center and played 12 minutes, collecting two points, two rebounds and two blocked shots.

The Kings got productivity from Tony Mitchell, who scored eight points, grabbed seven rebounds, dished out five assists and came up with two steals in 25 minutes.

The Kings' next Summer League game is on Monday against the Rockets at 3:30 p.m.
