Kings Waiving Eric Moreland

Jul 29, 2015 1:12 PM

The Sacramento Kings are releasing forward Eric Moreland, league sources told RealGM.

Moreland’s contract guarantee date is on Saturday, and the Kings’ front office eventually deemed his game too similar to rookie Willie Cauley-Stein. As a free agent, Moreland is expected to receive firm interest around the NBA.

At 6-foot-10, Moreland has strong finishing ability and activity. After recovering from shoulder surgery, Moreland had an impressive Summer League in Las Vegas for the second consecutive year. He averaged 6.4 points, eight rebounds and two blocks in 20 minutes per game for the Kings’ entry.

Moreland played three regular-season games for the Kings in 2014-15. In seven games with Reno in the D-League, he averaged 13.7 points, 12.7 rebounds and 1.6 blocks.

Moreland went unselected out of Oregon State in the 2014 NBA draft. Through workouts and the summer league, the 23-year-old earned a three-year contract with the Kings.
