The Kings have released big man Hamady N’Diaye, the team announced today in a press release. N’Diaye had been on a non-guaranteed contract, so Sacramento will avoid paying him a full-season salary by waiving him before tomorrow’s guarantee deadline.
N’Diaye, a former Rutgers center, appeared in 14 games this season for the Kings, though he averaged only 5.3 minutes per contest, limiting his production. In two games for Sacramento’s D-League affiliate, the Reno Bighorns, the 26-year-old received more playing time (28.0 MPG), but still didn’t make a significant impact, averaging 6.5 PPG and 6.0 RPG.
The Kings now have 13 contracts on their books, leaving two openings on the roster to add players via trade or free agency.
