Cole, Wieskamp Headline G League Draft Pool

Norris Cole and Joe Wieskamp are among 128 players who are eligible for the annual NBA G League draft, which will take place on Saturday at 1 p.m.

Cole, 34, played for Miami, New Orleans and Oklahoma City during his NBA career, which spanned 2011-17. He’s played for a variety of European teams since, most recently JL Bourg in France. He also played for Team USA this summer.

Wieskamp was waived by the Spurs on Monday. Wieskamp, 23, was drafted 41st overall in 2021 by the Spurs and spent most of his rookie season on a two-way contract with the team. He was converted to a rest-of-season standard contract in March, then re-signed with San Antonio in August on a two-year deal that includes a guaranteed $2.175MM salary for 2022/23.

Jared Rhoden, who was waived by both the Trail Blazers and Hawks this preseason, is another prominent name on the list.

Here is the full list of players eligible to be drafted, as provided by a G League press release:

Kings Waive Taren Sullivan

Shortly after signing him to an Exhibit 10 contract, the Kings have waived undrafted swingman Taren Sullivan, according to NBA.com’s log of official transactions.

Sullivan played all four of his collegiate seasons at Division II school Findlay, averaging 17.2 PPG, 6.0 RPG, and 3.2 APG in 28.9 MPG as a senior. He made a strong impression during the G League Player Invitational in August, leading the event with 18.5 PPG on 63.6% shooting.

While that GLPI showing helped him earn a deal with the Kings, Sullivan’s stint on the roster was brief. Still, Sacramento has now secured the NBAGL rights for the 6’6″ wing, and he looks like a good candidate to join the Stockton Kings in the G League this season.

With Sullivan no longer under contract, Sacramento now once again has an opening on its 20-man preseason roster.

OCTOBER 1: The Kings have agreed to a camp deal with Taren Sullivan, Jeremy Woo of Sports Illustrated tweets.

The undrafted 6’6” wing player attended Findlay, a Division II school in Ohio, and was the leading scorer at the G League player invitational.

Sullivan played all four of his collegiate seasons at Findlay and averaged 17.2 PPG, 6.0 RPG and 3.2 APG in 28.9 MPG as a senior. He also had workouts with the Cavaliers and Grizzlies, according to Woo.
