Kings Sign Damian Jones To 10-Day Deal

APRIL 7: The signing is now official via the Sacramento Kings official team page


APRIL 3: Free agent center Damian Jones will sign a 10-day contract with the Kings, tweets Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee. Jones will fill the roster spot the team created when it waived DaQuan Jeffries earlier today.

The exact date of Jones’ signing remains uncertain, Anderson adds (via Twitter). He has to clear all the NBA’s testing protocols before he’s eligible for a contract.

The Kings will be the third team of the year for Jones, who started the season with the Suns before being waived in February, then signed a pair of 10-day deals with the Lakers. He played 14 games with Phoenix and eight with L.A., averaging a combined 3.0 points and 2.0 rebounds per night.

The 25-year-old offers another option in the middle if the Kings decide to part with Hassan Whiteside, who has been rumored as a potential buyout candidate.

      This story is old already. I doubt they are buying him out now. April 9 is last day for playoff rosters to be filled. Sure would like for Knicks to pick him up. I doubt it now.

        Very surprised he hasn’t at least asked because the knicks could give him a decent chunk of change

        Sorry but that’s a clear case. Whitside is the only long guy in our team. And Monte said the plan is to qualify for the play in tourney.

        A buy out is don’t compatible with the kings plan
