According to James Ham of NBC Sports California, the Kings have assigned second-year big man Georgios Papagiannis to their G-League Affiliate, the Reno Bighorns:

This move doesn’t come as much of a surprise given Papagiannis’ lack of playing time to this point in the season. Papagiannis has only appeared in two of the team’s first ten games, playing a total of 12 minutes.
With both Kosta Koufos and Willie Cauley-Stein ahead of him in the rotation, he may be better off getting in reps with the Bighorns until an opportunity opens up for him in Sacramento.
