As reported last night by ArmanditoV , J.J. Hickson has received a buyout from the Sacramento Kings with confirmation from Yahoo’s Marc Spears:

JJ Hickson has completed a buyout with the Kings, league source tells Y!

Hickson, who was acquired shortly before the NBA locked out in exchange for Omri Casspi and a conditional first round pick struggled during his tenure in black and purple, putting up a putrid 4.7 points and 5.1 rebounds in 18 minutes a game.

The release comes as Hickson was to be entering restricted free agency and makes what appeared to be a solid trade at the time look even worse in reality.
