There were rumors that Eric Moreland may switch over to Detroit Pistons. But after a long negotiation, free agent forward Moreland has agreed to re-sign for Sacramento Kings on a one-year deal, according to reports.
Moreland’s contract also includes significant guarantee this season. The forward went undrafted out of Oregon state in 2014 last season and played for the Sacramento Kings for a certain time last season. He also featured for D-League side Reno Bighorns.

The Kings waived Moreland in early July, without guaranteeing his salary. The Kings didn’t recruit anyone else since then.
Moreland is known as an elegant shot-blocker and a specialist rebounder. He will contest with David Stockton, who has a non-guaranteed deal for a point guard position to make it to the Kings’ final roster.
With the $2,814,000 room exception available there is a probability that the Kings will pay him more salary this time.
The Kings don’t need a another big-man in their roster. They already have DeMarcus Cousins, Kosta Koufos, Willie Cauley-Stein in their roster. In point-guard position they have roped in Rajon Rondo, Darren Collison and Seth Curry.
The Kings have the option to add more players to their training camp roster, but at the moment it appears that Eric Moreland will make it to their final 15.
