Kings Waive Jordan Farmar, Isaiah Cousins, Lamar Patterson

Oct 24, 2016 5:38 PM

The Sacramento Kings have waived Jordan Farmar, Isaiah Cousins and Lamar Patterson.

Sacramento's roster now stands at 15.

Farmar ended last season for Dave Joerger and the Memphis Grizzlies last season and he figured to have a decent shot of making the regular season roster since Darren Collison will begin the season on suspension.

Marc Gasol Not Concerned By Sore Ankle

Oct 16, 2016 5:17 PM

Marc Gasol left in the third quarter of Saturday night's double-overtime preseason game against Houston with a sore right ankle.  

Gasol underwent surgery last February to repair a non-displaced Type II fracture of the navicular bone in his right foot.

"I didn't have to leave the game. I got subbed out," said Gasol. "Then just used (the time on the bench) to get some ice and remove my ankle tape. That was all."

Gasol went to the locker room after exiting the game and returned in the fourth quarter. 

"He's OK, he just got sore," David Fizdale said. "They will treat him (Sunday) and re-evaluate it, but I don't think it's anything to be worried about. At some point, we knew he was going to get sore, so we're expecting it to be fine."

Vince Carter Hopes To Play Two More Seasons

Sep 6, 2016 11:53 AM

Vince Carter continues his NBA career at 39 many years removed from when he was one of the game's most explosive dunkers and best wing scorers.

Carter was asked what keeps him playing after all these years.

"Love for the game. Nothing else," said Carter.

"I just love to play. It's not out of me yet. When I don't want to play and don't want to put the work in, that's when I step away from the game, but right now I still love it."

Carter hopes to play at least two more seasons.

"Not right now," Carter said when asked about retirement. "We know No. 19 is definitely going to go down. I'm shooting for 20, and we'll go from there after that."

Carter will earn $4.3 million in 16-17, which marks the third and final year on the deal he signed with Memphis.
