Kings Waive Matt Coleman III, DJ Steward

The Kings have waived guards Matt Coleman III and DJ Steward, the team announced in a press release.

Both players signed training camp deals with Sacramento in late July after going undrafted. They faced long odds to earn a roster spot and will likely wind up with the team’s G League affiliate in Stockton.

Coleman, who played four years at Texas, got into all three of the Kings’ preseason games, but didn’t score and averaged just 4.1 minutes per night. Steward, who spent one season at Duke, only appeared in Monday’s preseason contest, scoring two points in 3.5 minutes.

Sacramento is now down to 18 players in camp, with 14 guaranteed contracts.
