Kings waive Emanuel Terry

Terry is expected to join the Stockton Kings.

The Sacramento Kings announced that they have waived Emanuel Terry. Terry was on an Exhibit 10 deal and will likely join the Stockton Kings this year.

Terry’s deal was always expected to just be a training camp deal, so this move doesn’t come as a surprise. The move also finalizes the roster at 15 players plus the two 2-way contracts.

Terry stood out with his hustle and overall skill during the California Classic and Summer League, quickly becoming a fan favorite for anyone watching those games. That energy continued throughout training camp according to ABC10’s Sean Cunningham:

Given the Kings current roster construction it’s hard to see a path for Terry to earn a call up this year, but I’ll be rooting for him to succeed in Stockton.

I want to watch Stockton Kings games and root for these guys. Terry was fun to watch in Summer League.

He set the tone around the basket and ran the court like a guard. I really enjoyed watching him play and his effect on the team. The Dean of the University of Christie was always sitting next to him in LV it seemed. Chatted in the hallway with him for a minute, I told him the entire arena loved watching his energy and game.

Good on him. Like Andy, I hope he plays his way to the big tent. He is one of those “glue” teammates that everyone likes and everyone plays harder because they don’t want to let him down.

Hustle guy and we all like that.
Roster is set but teams have to cut down and there may be some deals for end of bench guys. Hawks have a ton of wings- fits with the bird image I suppose. They are in line to offer Reddish a rookie extension but may be reluctant.

I’m glad that he’ll be sticking around. He may yet play his way into an NBA career.

I like him as well. His hustle and determination reminds me of a smaller Holmes. If end up packaging a bun of players in trade, he’d be a nice call up.

If he can get himself to around league-average from three, he could definitely contribute as a big SF/small PF. Guys who make that kind of consistent effort have earned the chance to improve so that they can stay in the game.

I was very much hoping that we’d see Holmes taking some threes in the preseason, because he really needs to be viable out there. Based on his free throw numbers, it seems like he should be able to begin taking 3-4 a game, and see how it shakes out. If he can draw another big body even a couple of feet farther out than they’d like to be, things get easier for everyone.
