SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) -- The Sacramento Kings waived veteran forward Maurice Taylor on Tuesday.
Taylor, a 10th-year pro, played sparingly after signing with the Kings shortly before training camp. He played for the Houston Rockets and the Los Angeles Clippers before spending the past 1½ seasons with the New York Knicks.
Taylor appeared in 12 games with the Kings, averaging 2.0 points in 8.6 minutes.
Don't forget that he was bought out by New York, -then- signed with Sacramento.. so he was cut by -two- ****ty teams this year.
Atleast we can get a good lottery pick who can hopefully be a building block to go along with Martin, which is better than being a mediocre 1st round and out team.
Anyway I think it's done to free up money(if someone picks him up before he clears waivers right?)/time for Justin Williams who has played really well in a small amount of time. Hope it's been done to make room for a trade though, that'd be awesome.
The Kings were at 15 with Taylor, now they're at 14 guys.
They can make a trade in which they get one more guy than they give.
IF a move is coming - and I have no idea if one is - then it's probably for Miller or Bibby, who have bigger contracts, and not for Artest (who'd most likely be involved in a Maggette-type deal where the contracts work out straight-up).
