Kings' Georgios Papagiannis: Records first career double-double
Papagiannis registered 14 points (6-10 FG, 2-2 FT), 11 rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block across 22 minutes in a 110-94 win over the Thunder on Saturday.
With the Kings missing several key regulars Saturday as the team continues to set its sights on better draft positioning, Papagiannis was able to take on some increased minutes, and established new personal bests in points and rebounds en route to the first double-double of his career. The rookie has been out of the rotation for most of the season and hasn't exactly impressed at the D-League level, but he may be able to see some regular run off the bench over the final month of the campaign as the Kings look to see what he can do against NBA competition. It's probably still worthwhile to wait for him to turn in a repeat performance or two before grabbing him off the waiver wire in deeper leagues, however.
