The Sacramento Kings are clearing out their roster.
“According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Kings have released center Filip Petrushev (211 cm, 102 kg).
Sacramento acquired Petrushev in a trade with the 현금홀덤사이트 Los Angeles Clippers earlier this month. While the team is loaded with big men at center, they decided to keep Petrushev as a contingency plan, but the move clears the way for the center position.
Sacramento freed up a spot on the roster, and instead of bringing in another player right away, they decided to keep the spot open for the future. Sacramento is still looking to make changes and strengthen their roster, as they are currently interested in making other trades. It makes sense that they would want to keep the roster open for the future.
He has started two games since the trade. He traveled to California with James Harden (Clippers) when he was traded, but the Clippers sent him to Sacramento to save money. After not playing for the Clippers, he played for Sacramento after the trade. In two games, he scored 1.5 points in 3.5 minutes per game.
He didn’t get much playing time. As if that wasn’t enough, Sacramento is loaded at center with Domantas Sabonis. Jabale McGee and Alex Len hold down the fort. McGee and Wren, with their experience and height, provide a solid inside presence. That leaves no room for Petrusev, who was thought to have a chance with Wren’s recent injury, but didn’t make it.
Petrushev, a native of Serbia, entered the NBA via the 2021 draft. He was selected by the Philadelphia 76ers with the 20th pick of the second round. Before turning pro, he spent two seasons with the NCAA Gonzaga Bulldogs. Unable to sign a contract immediately after being drafted by Philadelphia, he had already spent three seasons in Europe after leaving the college ranks. He signed with Philadelphia this summer.
Petrushev, meanwhile, is expected to cross the Atlantic this time. It’s hard to be competitive in the NBA. According to BasketNews, a European news outlet, Petrushev is ready to move to Olympiacos. After playing college in the United States, Petrushev played all over Europe. He’s played mostly in the Serbian league and will continue to play in the Greek League if he heads to Olympiacos.
