Hurley expected to sign $15 million contract

July 27, 1993|By New York Daily News

NEW YORK -- Bobby Hurley's Horatio Alger tale could culminate in the next few days with the Jersey City native expected to sign a guaranteed six-year contract with the Sacramento Kings of the NBA worth an estimated $15 million.

Hurley, the Kings' first-round draft choice and seventh player taken overall, could finalize the deal as early as today. Hurley's father, Bob Sr., said last night his son and the Kings were "very close" on an agreement that would allow Bobby to participate in mini-camp this week.

"We've gotten much closer now, but whether it's going to be [Tuesday] or [Wednesday], I don't know," Hurley Sr. said. "We're hoping, at the least, to have Bobby on a plane going out to Sacramento on Thursday."

The pending agreement will make a rich man out of a 6-foot guard out of Duke who has been considered an NBA long shot.
