(From the diaries. Thanks for the news, kingme18. This certainly could have something to do with some trade rumors, but I'll get into that in the comments. - TZ)
The Kings have cut their roster down to 14 by waiving Orien Greene, Geoff Petrie announced. Orien Greene has disappointed by Reggie Theus' standards and with Udrih signed as the point guard sharing the duties with Douby, Garcia, Salmons and even Artest, The Kings probably felt Greene was excess.
I, for one was kind of stunned the Kings waived Greene over Watkins because with the return of Justin Williams, I thought the Kings front-court would have been too deep while there is also glaring hole at the point with a lack of a true point guard other than Udrih rather than having a shooting guard or a small-forward transformed version of a point guard.
