Kings Get Head

by September 05, 2010

After a deal with NOLA fell through earlier in the summer, Sacramento’s reached an agreement with Luther Head. Yahoo has more: “After a dubious failed physical that nullified an agreement with the New Orleans Hornets in mid-July, free agent guard Luther Head has agreed to a non-guaranteed deal with the Sacramento Kings, league sources told Yahoo! Sports. If Sacramento finds that Head’s ankle is healthy, he has a good chance to make the roster and play a reserve role for the Kings, sources say. Head is guaranteed $992,000 for the 2010-11 season, if he’s on the Kings roster on Dec. 1, one source says. And yet like the rest of the league, the Kings were unwilling to guarantee the deal because Hornets president Hugh Weber declared that Head had flunked his physical in July. …The Kings are also inviting former Celtics and Knicks forward J.R. Giddens to training camp with a non-guaranteed deal, Yahoo! Sports’ Marc Spears reports.”
