NBA Trade Rumors: Sacramento Kings To Waive Eric Moreland

Eric Moreland’s stint with the Sacramento Kings is going to be short-lived, according to sources.

Moreland’s contract becomes guaranteed on August 1, and the Kings are expected to waive him prior to that. Any team will get a 48-hour time to put a claim on him and try to pick him once the Kings waive him.

Moreland Market

As a free-agent 6-foot-10 forward Moreland is expected to receive firm interest from NBA teams. Earlier, there was increasing trade interest in Moreland this summer; it would be surprising if he isn’t picked up.

In Las Vegas last summer, Moreland registered a strong performance by virtue of his good defensive capabilities and rebounding which fetched him a two-year contract with the Kings. He averaged 13.7 points, 12.7 rebounds and 1.6 blocks in 7 games with Reno Bighorns, where he spent most of the time of his career.

But his performance failed a little after recovering from a shoulder injury in this year’s summer league, averaging just 6.4 points on 38.7% from the field to go with 8 rebounds and 2 blocks a game.

The Kings still have Willie Cauley-Stein on board, and having roped in Kosta Koufos, Duje Dukan and Quincy Acy, it was clearly evident that Moreland didn’t have any space to feature for Sacramento.
