The Kings contend that their doctors found an injury for Luc Mbah a Moute that caused them to void his deal.

The NBPA filed a grievance against the Kings after the team voided his one-year deal. Mbah a Moute played in today's NBA Africa game and looked healthy as a starter. The Kings have been in the news a lot this offseason, so their fans are looking forward to the start of the season as much as any fan base.

The NBPA is filing a grievance against the Sacramento Kings over the voiding of Luc Mbah a Moute's contract.

Mbah a Moute had initially agreed to a one-year deal with the Kings worth $1.5 million, but the Kings canceled his contract due to a failed physical. The Kings were concerned with his right shoulder, but the NBPA and Mbah a Moute's agents have produced their own medical examinations that have cleared him to play. The NBPA will file the grievance next week, so we will post any additional details when we know more. For what it's worth, Mbah a Moute is playing for Team Africa against Team World on Saturday.

The Kings will reportedly hire WNBA legend Nancy Lieberman as an assistant coach.

Kings VP Vlade Divac will make the offer next week, and Lieberman has reportedly said that she will accept. The Spurs' addition of Becky Hammon to their coaching staff has opened a lot of doors for women to seek larger roles in the NBA, so this is certainly an exciting announcement for Sacramento. We will let you know when the deal becomes official.

Eric Moreland has reportedly been receiving interest from around the league.

Moreland was released by the Kings as he faced an uphill battle to make the final roster, but his solid Summer League performance in Las Vegas has kept him on teams' radars. The 23-year-old will get a camp invite somewhere, but he's unlikely to see enough playing time to matter in standard fantasy leagues.

Kings waive F Eric Moreland.

The move became official after an earlier report today. Moreland had himself a solid Summer League in Vegas, averaging 6.4 points, 8.0 boards and 2.0 blocks. The Kings picking up Kosta Koufos and drafting Willie Cauley-Stein certainly made it tough for Moreland to make the team. He'll get a camp invite elsewhere.

The Kings will waive F Eric Moreland.

His minimum salary would have been guaranteed if they waited until Saturday, so the writing was on the wall for Moreland. He only managed to appear in three games last season due to a shoulder injury, but we will let you know if he latches on with another NBA team.

According to Sheridan Hoops, DeMarcus Cousins is a big fan of Reggie Evans and is hoping that the Kings re-sign him.

There has been a lot of turmoil between head coach George Karl and DeMarcus Cousins this summer, so it wouldn't be the worst idea for the Kings to please their franchise center. Evans only made 43 appearances for the Kings last season with averages of 3.7 points and 6.4 rebounds in 16.3 minutes per game, so it's obvious that he wouldn't be a factor in fantasy leagues if he re-signed with the Kings.
Jul 28 - 4:47 PM

DeMarcus Cousins will definitely be at Team USA's minicamp this August, while Rudy Gay will likely be there as well.

Cousins is easily one of the best big men in the NBA, and he figures to be a lock to make the final roster for the Rio Olympics in 2016. As for the upcoming NBA season, Cousins' relationship with head coach George Karl will constantly be under the spotlight, so it will be interesting to see how everything plays out in Sacramento this season.

The Kings parted ways with their Head of Analytics Dean Oliver on Sunday.

There were some rumblings earlier in the day that Kings VP Vlade Divac was against analytics, but that simply isn't true and the Kings are reportedly already looking for a replacement. Oliver was brought into Sacramento when Pete D'Alessandro was still in town, so it's clear that Divac would like to pick his own front office. The Kings are reportedly looking to add Peja Stojakovic and Bobby Jackson to their front office, so we will continue to follow this story closely.

Caron Butler officially signed his two-year, $3 million deal with the Kings on Thursday.

Butler has a player option on the second year of his contract. He'll be joining a very crowded rotation, featuring guys like Rudy Gay, Omri Casspi, Ben McLemore and Marco Belinelli so he's not going to be worth drafting in most fantasy leagues next season.
Jul 23 - 4:51 PM

Seth Curry's two-year, $2 million deal with the Kings is reportedly fully guaranteed for the first season and has a player option on the second year.

Curry will be competing for minutes with Rajon Rondo, Darren Collison, Ben McLemore, Marco Belinelli and James Anderson in Sacramento, so it'll take more than a few injuries before we can consider him an asset in fantasy hoops.
Jul 22 - 10:21 AM

The Kings and FA Seth Curry have agreed on a two-year, $2 million deal.

Sacramento is "closing in on a deal," according to Marc Stein, and it sounds like Seth Curry may be playing in the same division as his MVP brother. Curry was voted to the Summer League's 'First Team' after averaging an impressive 24.3 points, 4.2 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 3.2 steals and 1.5 turnovers in 33.1 minutes over six games. Fantasy owners shouldn't get excited however, as the Kings are already stacked in the backcourt with Rajon Rondo, Darren Collison, Ben McLemore, Marco Belinelli and James Anderson.
Jul 21 - 8:39 PM

The Kings signed Duje Dukan to a contract on Monday.

Dukan was a bench big for the Wisconsin Badgers and played well for the Kings at Summer League. Still, he's unlikely to make the team.
Jul 20 - 7:56 PM

Quincy Acy agreed to a two-year deal with the Kings on Monday.

The second year has a player option. Acy was with the Kings back in the 2013-14 season and was starting to play well towards the end of that campaign. Last season with the Knicks, he was becoming more of a stretch four, which is something the Kings are looking to add to their frontcourt rotation. He's still not worth drafting in almost any league.
Jul 20 - 7:51 PM

Seth Curry continued his strong Summer League play on Sunday, scoring 21 points on 7-of-16 shooting, to go with two 3-pointers, two assists, two rebounds, one steal and one turnover through 35 minutes of action.

Curry has worked hard to improve his ball handling abilities, and that has really been on full display during Summer League. He was named to the Summer League First Team on Sunday, and given how well he's played, he should be able to get a contract offer from an NBA club. That being said, Curry is unlikely to be much more than an emergency depth kind of guy, so he's not going to be worth drafting in most leagues.
