Eric Moreland RumorsAll NBA Players
Kings rookie Eric Moreland has been sidelined since early January after shoulder surgery. But that doesn’t mean the veterans on the team are taking it easy on him. He got a surprise when he got to his car after Saturday’s loss to the Clippers, and posted a photo to Instagram.
The Sacramento Kings announced today that rookie forward Eric Moreland underwent successful surgery Saturday to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder. The surgery was performed by Dr. Arthur Ting in Fremont, California, after an initial consultation with Kaiser Permanente. He will begin rehabilitation immediately and should be ready for NBA Summer League play.
The injury is actually good news financially for Moreland. Prior, he had just $200,000 of his $507,336 salary guaranteed, and he’d already earned $199,950 by staying on the roster this long. Now, as a result of the injury, the full salary is guaranteed. The final two years of his deal remain unguaranteed, so Moreland will have to prove himself during the offseason and preseason for Sacramento to bring him back. But at least he’ll be around the rest of this year, which was no guarantee until now.

Moreland is averaging 8.6 rebounds and 2.6 blocks in five summer league games. His rebounding and defense might be enough to earn him an invitation to training camp. “I would think so; I think I earned a contract,” Moreland said. “That’s what they asked for, that’s what they’re looking for, that’s what the team needs. But at the same time, I’m not worried about that. I’m focused on winning this game (today).”
