Kings Re-Sign Chimezie Metu To Two-Way Contract

DECEMBER 24: Metu’s two-way contract is now official, according to a press release issued by the Kings.

DECEMBER 23: The Kings are filling their open two-way slot by re-signing forward/center Chimezie Metu, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN (Twitter link). Metu cleared waivers today after being cut from Sacramento’s standard roster on Monday.

Selected 49th overall in the 2018 draft by the Spurs, Metu was never able to establish consistent playing time in San Antonio during his two years with the team. He appeared in 47 games over the last two seasons, averaging 2.3 PPG and 1.5 RPG in 5.3 minutes per contest before being waived by the Spurs last month.

Metu subsequently caught on with the Kings on a three-year contract with a $50K partial guarantee in year one and played well in the preseason, with 24 points, nine rebounds, and three blocks in 29 total minutes. However, since Sacramento was carrying 14 players on guaranteed contracts and Glenn Robinson III earned the 15th spot, there was no room for Metu.

Because he has just two years of NBA service under his belt and his guarantee didn’t exceed $50K, Metu remained eligible to sign a two-way contract with Sacramento after clearing waivers. He’ll occupy one of the Kings’ two-way slots while Kyle Guy has the other.

As our two-way tracker shows, only the Pistons, Suns, and Trail Blazers will still have open two-way spots once Metu’s deal with Sacramento is official.

    Porter put up 22 pts in 27 mins. I guess he heard those Har en rumors. And now we know they are true. Har en will infect your whole team.

      The “Haren” joke got old about 5 years ago, didn’t you get the memo?

    As I said again and again, Nuggets are overrated
    Kings beat Nuggets in Denver today
    Nuggets won’t pass first round playoffs

      Sillivan please! I have see the game. Murray was bad. The three point land was a mine field and the defense in the Zone was terrible. OK yes it was a bad Nuggets game. But it was one game!!! Porter, Jokic, Murray have enough skills for a very good playoff team. Barton and Harris have good defense. Millsap is a old veteran. This Team working for a 4 or 5 spot in the, Western conference. I like for the kings win. But I think it was a game where we are playing on the fight level and Denver not.

    And a, another ask. You have the two LA Teams. The are maybe better than Denver because they are a quantity team. But Mavs or Jazz? Maybe, but I think Denver is the Favorit vs. this, Teams
