Kings Waive Marshall Henderson and Vince Hunter


The Sacramento Kings appear to be making some final touches to their roster as the regular season approaches. Marc J. Spears of Yahoo Sports tweeted Thursday that the Kings have reportedly waived training camp invitees Marshall Henderson and Vince Hunter.

These roster cuts are hardly unexpected.  Neither Henderson nor Hunter were initially favored to make the Kings final roster, and neither player has received much playing time during the preseason thus far.

With players like Eric Moreland really impressing in their preseason minutes, it made things even tougher on Henderson and Hunter. They never had a real chance to shine during over the last five games, but that’s just how it goes in the NBA sometimes.

However, for any Marshall Henderson fans out there, don’t lose hope for the young shooting guard just yet! Spears followed up on his initial tweet, noting that the Kings did offer Henderson a spot on their D-League affiliate, the Reno Big Horns.

With Reno’s extremely high-scoring offensive system in place, Henderson would be a natural fit.  Maybe so much so that he could impress some more scouts and get another shot at the NBA.

It should go without saying that Henderson’s polarizing on-court behavior from his college days would spice up the NBA should he ever make it into the league.   And really, who wouldn’t want to see some more of this?

We’ll see going forward how the other players on the fringe of making the Kings’ roster fare–the only certain thing right now is that nobody is certain on who exactly is going to be around come opening night.
