The Kings have waived forward Antoine Wright, the team announced Monday. Yahoo!'s Marc Spears was the first to report the decision.
Wright hardly played and never produced for the 4-11 Kings. He was brought in as a defensive-minded wing, just as Desmond Mason and Ime Udoka were in 2009-10. As with Mason and Udoka, Wright failed to make an impact. He did, however, rack up a DUI early in the season.
Unfortunately for the Kings, cutting Wright will save the Kings little to nothing in terms of salary. Wright had signed a guaranteed one-year deal that cost the Kings $854,389. He will be paid that salary in full by Sacramento.
The Kings now have two open roster spots, should they be needed in the event of a trade.
