Free agent Eric Moreland played in three regular-season games with the Sacramento Kings last season before suffering a labral tear in his shoulder. This summer, the Kings waived the 6-foot-10 forward. Though the Detroit Pistons are the reported frontrunner for Moreland, two California teams may still be in the mix. From Shams Charania with RealGM:
- "The Los Angeles Lakers and Sacramento Kings are strong under consideration for Moreland, sources said, and their front offices expect the 6-foot-10 forward to settle upon a destination once the final offers are presented."
Following his recovery from shoulder surgery, Moreland averaged 6.4 points, eight rebounds and two blocks in 20 minutes per game during Summer League play with the Kings in Las Vegas.
