The Kings have waived Lamar Patterson, according to a team press release. Sacramento entered the day with 18 players under contract, as the team’s depth chart at Roster Resource indicates, so the franchise has at least two more cuts to make before it can set its opening night roster,
The swingman out of the University of Pittsburg played in four preseason games with the Kings, averaging 5.8 points, 1.8 rebounds and 1.0 steals per game. He shot 45.5% from the field, including 33.3% from behind the arc.
The Bucks drafted Patterson with the 48th overall selection in the 2014 draft and dealt his rights to the Hawks on draft night. He played overseas during the 2014/15 season before signing with Atlanta during the 2015 offseason. He spent much of the 2015/16 season playing in the D-League and the Hawks waived him in July.
