Tyler Honeycutt Will Be Recalled From D-League, Rejoin Kings

Jason Jones reports that the Sacramento Kings will recall Tyler Honeycutt from the Reno Bighorns of the NBA D-League early this week. Honeycutt was sent down at the beginning of the month. With Reno, Honeycutt has played 10 games with one start, averaging just 12.7 minutes per game for Paul Mokeski. He has shot just 17-39 (43.5 percent) on two-pointers but a solid 6-16 (37.5 percent) on threes. The Kings desperately need shooting help -- Honeycutt shot 36.2 percent on three-pointers at UCLA last season.

The timing is a bit odd as Chuck Hayes is expected back this week and John Salmons' absence from Saturday's game in Memphis was due to a stomach virus, not an injury that would linger. Marcus Thornton, who left Saturday's game after reaggravated his contused quad on Friday, could be out a bit, which could force Keith Smart to play his top two small forwards -- Salmons and Francisco Garcia -- at the two to keep Jimmer Fredette in a reserve role.

Hassan Whiteside remains with Reno. He's averaging 3.4 blocks and almost seven rebounds per game in 20 minutes, but is an abysmal 12-33 from the line and doesn't score much (7.3 per game).
