    Sacramento Kings to waive Eric Moreland

    By | 0 Comments | Mar 5, 2019

    It appears that Eric Moreland's tenure with the Sacramento Kings is going to be short-lived. According to a report from Real GM's Shams Charania, the Kings are expected to waive Moreland before his contract becomes guaranteed on August 1st. Once Moreland is waived, there will be a 48 hour period in which any team can put a claim on him to try to pick him up. Given that there was purported trade interest for Moreland this past summer, it'd be unsurprising if he was picked up.

    Moreland was signed to a two-year deal last season after a strong summer league in which he showcased some good defense and rebounding. Moreland spent most of the season with the Reno Bighorns, but that season was unfortunately cut short due to shoulder surgery. He averaged 13.7 points, 12.7 rebounds and 1.6 blocks in 7 games with Reno. Moreland did play with this year's summer league squad in Vegas, but averaged just 6.4 points on 38.7% from the field to go with 8 rebounds and 2 blocks a game.

    With Willie Cauley-Stein on board as well as the signings of Kosta Koufos, Duje Dukan and Quincy Acy, it was a long shot to see Moreland get any playing time this season for the Kings. If Moreland completely clears waivers, he could still join the Kings for Summer Camp, but even then he'd probably have a tough chance making the squad.

    Hopefully this isn't the end of Moreland's NBA career. He's definitely got the talent to play in the NBA. Hopefully he'll be able to catch on somewhere where he'll get the chance to show that talent.
