Kings buy out J.J. Hickson

By Matt Moore | NBA writer
The Kings announced Monday that they have reached a buyout agreement with forward J.J. Hickson.

Hickson was once thought to be a building block for Cleveland after the LeBron era but struggled to convert his considerable athleticism to on-cour production. The Cavaliers traded Hickson to the Kings for Omri Casspi and a protected first-round pick.

Hickson will enter a thin bought-out-players free agency market as one of the few players with upside. His considerable athleticism should result in a number of teams taking a look at him. Danny Ferry originally drafted Hickson for the Cavaliers in 2008 and is now part of the San Antonio Spurs' frontcourt, though San Antonio is expected to be centrally focused on either Patty Mills or Derek Fisher.
