Shams Charania: The Cleveland Cavaliers are signing forward Mfiondu Kabengele to a 10-day contract, sources tell @TheAthletic @Stadium.
James Ham: According to a league source, the Sacramento Kings are expected to release forward/center Mfiondu Kabengele. This move will bring the regular roster back to 15 players.
Bobby Marks: Because his 3rd year team option was declined, the maximum that Sacramento could offer Kabengele in free agency is $2.17M (the same salary if his 2021-22 team option was not declined).
Andrew Greif: The Clippers are not picking up their third-year option on center Mfiondu Kabengele. Today was the deadline to make a decision. Kabengele was the 27th pick in the 2019 draft. He could still be back with the team next year, but he'll obviously be evaluated as the year goes on.

Last week, The Post reported that Webber’s return for next year was very much in question. There had been no contract negotiations. There was a feeling that TNT did not want him back and maybe he didn’t want to return.
Nick Friedell: JTA: “I’m a Warrior for life. Regardless if I’m here the rest of my career or I’m just here for another year, this is always going to be a part of my heart and a part of me…I grew up idolizing Larry Hughes, now I get to play with Stephen Curry.”
