The Sacramento Kings waived wing Justin James. James spent two seasons with the Kings after being drafted in the second round of the 2019 NBA Draft. The Wyoming product played in 72 total games for Sacramento.
James averaged just 7.5 minutes per game over 36 games played in each of the 2019-20 and 2020-21 seasons. During that time, James averaged 3.2 points per game.
The 2021-22 contract for James was set to become fully guaranteed if he wasn’t waived on August 15. Because his contract was non-guaranteed, the Kings won’t have any cap hit for James. He’ll become an unrestricted free agent upon clearing waivers.
