The NBA trade deadline has passed, and the Sacramento Kings were surprisingly quiet. Largely expected to boost their supporting cast, the Kings only aided the Milwaukee Bucks in a salary dump. 

That doesn’t mean the chance to add players has passed completely, however. With the trade season over, it is now time to keep an eye on the buyout market. After signing Keon Ellis to a standard NBA contract, the Kings would have to waive someone to make room on the roster, but it is still an option.

Several players have been dealt to teams where they don’t have a future. So, they will try to negotiate contract buyouts, if they haven’t yet, and sign with a different team. Here are three players the Kings could sign. 

3. Marcus Morris

Marcus Morris has a tumultuous trade deadline. First, he was sent to Indiana and then to the Spurs. The rebuilding Spurs do not really have a role available for the veteran and quickly decided to buy him out. 

Now in his 13th season, Morris is not the player he used to be anymore but he still has something to offer. He is a solid three-point shooter and, having been to the playoffs all of the last six seasons, provides valuable postseason experience. 

Morris would not be a huge difference-maker for the Kings, but it could be worth a shot. The Kings need some new energy, and after not making a trade, there are few options left to get that.
