Kings waive forward J.J. Hickson

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) -- The Sacramento Kings have waived forward J.J. Hickson.

Kings president of basketball operations Geoff Petrie announced the move Monday. Sacramento acquired Hickson last June from Cleveland for forward Omri Casspi and a conditional future first-round draft pick.

Hickson played 35 games for Sacramento. He averaged 4.7 points and 5.1 rebounds in 18.4 minutes per contest. He had been bothered recently by back spasms and played only 6 minutes in the past 10 games.

Hickson was a first-round pick by Cleveland out of North Carolina State in 2008.
