7:08pm: Quinn Cook and Shabazz Muhammad also have workouts set for the Kings this week, tweets James Ham of ESPN 1320. Sacramento has three roster spots to fill.
6:44pm: Matthew Dellavedova is working out for the Kings in Las Vegas in hopes of earning an invitation to training camp, tweets Dave McMenamin of ESPN.
The 31-year-old Australian guard played for the Cavaliers during the 2020/21 season, but was limited to 13 games because of various injuries, a concussion and an emergency appendectomy. He returned home to play for Melbourne United this past season, but is hoping for an NBA comeback.
McMenamin notes that Mike Brown, Sacramento’s new head coach, was coaching in Cleveland when Dellavedova broke into the NBA in 2013.
Dellavedova played 447 games in eight NBA seasons, mostly with the Cavaliers, though he also spent some time with the Bucks. Known as an on-court leader and a scrappy defender, he was part of Cleveland’s championship team in 2016.

I don’t know much about Neto but I wish the timing was best and the Cavs had a chance to work him out too. He could be a great mentor to the young guards and hold the fort down in case Rubio takes longer to get back on the court.
‘Scrappy defender’ = dirty player?
Kings are the worst dude.
Yes. Sacramento fans know this. No need to bully the special needs team. It is like saying water is wet.
Sac was in the WCF 20 years ago, don’t u remember dude? lol
