Kings assign Sim Bhullar and David Wear to Reno Bighorns

When the Kings cut undrafted rookie Sim Bhullar to end preseason, our friend James Ham reported that the Kings would be assigning him to the Reno Bighorns.  NBA rules allow for up to four "affiliate players" to be assigned to D-League teams by the team that cut them.  Today, the D-League released the complete list of affiliate player assignments, and sure enough Bhullar's name was listed as was David Wear's.  Sacramento's other training camp cut, Deonte Burton, is headed overseas to play in Germany for Ratiopharm Ulm.

Bhullar and Wear will be joining a Bighorns team under new coach David Arseneault, Jr. who is sure to experiment offensively.  They'll likely be joined at some point by rookie Eric Moreland, who is unlikely to see much playing time on the main roster, barring injuries.  This year with Reno will be a good chance for Bhullar to get in shape and potentially rejoin the Kings next season with a real chance at making the roster.
