As we get closer to the Orlando bubble, the NBA is starting to set out the path for teams. One of the first steps begins this week with a short window for free agency.
On Saturday morning, Shams Charania of The Athletic reported the timeline the NBA has set forth for the Kings and other NBA teams to make roster adjustments.
All 30 teams are allowed to sign players during the seven-day window from June 23-30. The Kings have roughly three days to sift through the list of eligible free agents before deciding whether or not to extend a contract to someone for added depth in Orlando.
The Kings’ roster currently stands at 14 players, plus two-way players Kyle Guy and DaQuan Jeffries. Guy has appeared in just two games for the Kings this season after being drafted in the second round of the 2019 NBA Draft. Jeffries, who went undrafted out of Tulsa, has appeared in six games for the parent club.
Both players have had success at the G League level, but the Kings might want to add a more experienced body to the mix in case they run into injury or illness issues in the bubble in Orlando.
Sacramento is deep at most positions, especially with Marvin Bagley healthy and ready to jump in the fray.
According to Charania, teams can sign rest-of-season contracts, substitute players, two-way contracts and waivers during the window.

We’ll have more on this story as information becomes available. Don’t be surprised if the Kings actively search for one more piece to the puzzle just to err on the side of caution.
