The Sacramento Kings have waived guard/forward DaQuan Jeffries, according to General Manager Monte McNair.
Following the Kings’ disappointing loss to the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday night at Golden 1 Center, Sacramento is set to make a roster move. An NBA source confirmed to NBC Sports California that the Kings intend to waive second-year guard/forward DaQuan Jeffries. After missing the first 24 games of the season with an ankle injury, Jeffries earned a spot in the rotation. But over his last 11 games, Jeffries has played a total of 28 minutes, including seven games where he didn’t step on the floor.
The 23-year-old averaged 3.1 points and 1.6 rebounds per game over 17 games for the Kings this season. He has potential as a 3-and-D wing, but he might need more time at the G League level to refine his game. According to a league source, the Kings intend to sign another player in the coming days, although those details are still to be determined. Step one in the process was to open a roster spot.
