As Kings fans have been eagerly anticipating, Shams Charania of RealGM is reporting that the Kings are signing Eric Moreland.
The Sacramento Kings have reached agreement with summer league forward Eric Moreland on a free agent contract, league sources tell RealGM.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) July 30, 2014
Moreland made a strong impression at Las Vegas Summer League for the Kings, and it's been expected that the Kings would sign him to a minimum deal. The Kings are overstocked at the power forward position, but Moreland brings a unique skill set that the Kings have been missing. We'll need to see how he fares against NBA talent, but Moreland is likely already the Kings' best rim protector.
We're still waiting for the official announcement from the Kings organization, as well as an official announcement regarding Omri Casspi, but there's no reason not to believe this particular report.
Welcome to Sacramento, Eric Moreland!
Update: Moreland confirmed the report, via his Twitter.
Update: Charania is now reporting that it's a 3 year deal
