The Sacramento Kings have waived Jeremy Lamb. There is hope that if he clears waivers, he will join the Stockton Kings. @JandersonSacBee first with the news

Anderson reports that, assuming he clears waivers, Lamb is expected to join the Stockton Kings.
Lamb is an experienced veteran on the tail end of his career. He originally came to Sacramento as part of the Domantas Sabonis trade, and appeared in 17 games for the Kings at the end of the 2021-22 season. Lamb did not play in the NBA or G League last season. It’s a little surprising to see him taking a G League role, but he’ll be able to provide a nice veteran presence for the developing players in Stockton. I like the idea of it overall, even if it does come as a bit of a curveball.
When the Kings added Lamb to the training camp roster I thought he had a good chance to land the 15th roster spot as a veteran wing who would be on a contract that was easy to cut if the team had a need for the extra roster spot. It remains unclear if the Kings intend to keep that 15th spot open as they enter the regular season, or if they have other plans.
