Kings To Exercise Option On Kessler Edwards

The Kings have decided to pick up Kessler Edwards $1.9MM option for next season, tweets ESPN’s Adrian Wojnaroski.

Sacramento acquired the 22-year-old small forward from the Nets at this year’s trade deadline. He appeared in 22 games with the Kings, averaging 3.9 points and 2.1 rebounds per night in a limited role.

Brooklyn drafted Kessler in the second round in 2021 and he made an impact during his rookie year, starting 23 of the 48 games he played. He fell out of the Nets’ rotation this season and appeared in just 14 games before the deal.

Edwards will become a free agent next summer, and the Kings can make him restricted by issuing a $2.4MM qualifying offer.
