Chris Mannix of The Vertical reported that restricted free agent Dion Waiters is gaining “significant traction” in Sacramento.
Mannix has been hit-or-miss with Sacramento through the years and Waiters is a young shooting guard so he’s definitely on the Kings’ list of guys to look at. He had a real nice playoffs and after the Thunder picked up Victor Oladipo he is probably obtainable for a team that makes a semi-decent offer. From the Kings’ perspective the shooting guard position is exceedingly deep with lower-end talent similar to Waiters so they can afford to take their time and spend wisely.
A player gaining significant traction in Sacramento, sources tell @TheVertical: Dion Waiters. Kings have a need for backcourt scoring.
