SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Wenyen Gabriel has made the final roster for the Sacramento Kings and this time it's a permanent position.
Gabriel had signed a two-way contract with the team before last season. He didn't play for the Kings but averaged 10 points, 7 rebounds and a blocked shot per game in 42 games for the Sacramento's G League team in Stockton. He did play in all four of the Kings preseason games this year averaging 5 points and 3 rebounds.
The Kings are basically getting rid of the two-way contract in the second year and putting Gabriel on the main roster.
Sacramento opens the season Wednesday night at Phoenix.
The Athletic was the first to report the news.
