Top Neemias Queta News

  • Kings' Neemias Queta: Defends well at Summer League

    Queta averaged 12.8 points, 6.5 rebound, 1.5 assists and 2.8 blocks in four Summer League games.

    Queta proved that he can be a high-quality rim protector while anchoring the Kings' defense in Vegas. He did have to leave one contest against the Pacers due to left calf soreness, but the injury doesn't look to be anything of real concern. The Kings finished 27th in defensive rating last season, so they certainly could use help on that end. The only other true shot-blocker on the team is Richaun Holmes, who missed the end of last season while dealing with a personal matter. All things considered, Queta will face an uphill battle toward making an impact at the NBA level, but he fared well enough at Summer League that the Kings may give him an extended look during the preseason.

  • Kings' Neemias Queta: Good to go Wednesday

    Queta (calf) will play Wednesday against the Thunder, Sean Cunningham of ABC 10 Sacramento reports.

    Queta was unable to return to action Sunday after leaving due to calf soreness, but the problem appears to have subsided after a few days to rest. The big man tallied 12 points, seven boards and four blocks before his departure Sunday and will aim to follow that with another strong showing Wednesday.

  • Kings' Neemias Queta: Ruled out for remainder of game

    Queta has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's Summer League game against the Pacers due to left calf soreness.

    Queta notched 12 points (5-6 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds and four blocks in 17 minutes before suffering the injury. The extent of his issue is unknown, but his next chance to suit up will come Wednesday against the Thunder.

  • Kings' Neemias Queta: Back with Kings on another two-way

    Queta and the Kings agreed to a two-way contract Saturday.

    Queta was on a two-way deal with the Kings last year as well. He appeared in 14 games with the parent club and averaged 3.2 points and 2.2 rebounds in 8.6 minutes. He should have a similar role this year.

  • Kings' Neemias Queta: Makes first appearance since Jan.

    Queta racked up three points (1-1 FG, 1-2 FT) and one rebound in 15 minutes during Monday's 123-100 loss to the Heat.

    Queta was elevated from the G League ahead of Monday's contest and made his first NBA appearance since Jan. 31. The rookie second-round pick played double-digit minutes for just the second time this season and connected on his only field-goal attempt. It's unclear if his increased playing time was a product of Sacramento's large deficit, or if the Kings are actually going to give the Utah State product an extended look over the final two weeks of the campaign, which would make sense given Domantas Sabonis (knee) and Richaun Holmes (personal) are both out for an extended period. Regardless, Queta isn't expected to generate enough production to warrant fantasy consideration.

  • Kings' Neemias Queta: Rejects four shots

    Queta produced 19 points (7-11 FG, 3-4 FT), three rebounds, three assists and four blocks over 32 minutes during Monday's 119-100 win over Austin.

    The two-way player was a force on both ends of the floor, tying for a team-high in scoring while recording yet another multi-block game. As the Kings continue to fall behind in the Western Conference playoff race, it will be interesting to see if the organization decides to give their rookie some more NBA-level experience in their last few games.

  • Kings' Neemias Queta: Big outing in win

    Queta ended with 29 points (14-19 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), nine rebounds, one assist and three blocks over 33 minutes during Thursday's 114-99 win over the Blue.

    The rookie out of Utah State is on a two-way contract with Sacramento but continues to shine when playing down with Stockton. Queta is averaging 16.5 points and 8.3 rebounds per game over his first 12 appearances in the G League.

  • Kings' Neemias Queta: Nears double-double

    Queta ended with 18 points (9-12 FG), nine rebounds, four assists, one steal and two blocks during Tuesday's 106-98 loss to the Hustle.

    The Utah State product is a nightly threat for a double-double each time he takes the floor with Stockton and he finished just a rebound shy of achieving one Tuesday. Queta is averaging 15.3 points and 8.3 rebounds per game while spending his time in the G League.

  • Kings' Neemias Queta: Double-double in start

    Queta finished with 14 points (5-8 FG, 2-2 FT), 12 rebounds, one assist and one block over 25 minutes during Wednesday's 109-99 loss to Santa Cruz.

    The rookie center played solid during Wednesday's defeat, leading Stockton in rebounding once again. Queta is averaging 15.0 points and 8.25 rebounds per game over his eight appearances in the G League this season.

  • Kings' Neemias Queta: Solid all-around showing

    Queta finished with 16 points (7-9 FG, 1-1 FT), eight rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block across 25 minutes during Thursday's 117-107 victory over Sioux Falls.

    The rookie out of Utah State filled up the stat sheet during Stockton's win while playing just 25 minutes. Queta is on a two-way contract so he should be able to continue to put up solid numbers for Stockton as long as he is down with the team.

  • Kings' Neemias Queta: Double-double in defeat

    Queta finished with 22 points (8-10 FG, 4-5 FT), 11 rebounds, one assist, one steal and two blocks across 28 minutes during Monday's 124-91 loss to Delaware.

    After a brief stint with the parent club, the two-way player finds himself back in Stockton for now. The G League team is more than happy to have Queta back, as his 22 points were tied for the highest total on the team, while he also led his squad in rebounds. Queta figures to be one of Stockton's top options whenever he's with the team.

  • Kings' Neemias Queta: Notches season-best effort

    Queta recorded 11 points (4-7 FG, 3-4 FT), five rebounds, one assist and one steal in 24 minutes during Monday's 109-108 loss to the Cavaliers.

    Queta entered the contest having logged just 11 total minutes across three games, but he was given the opportunity for an expanded role with Richaun Holmes (COVID-19 protocols), Damian Jones (COVID-19 protocols) and Tristan Thompson (quadriceps) all out of action. The rookie center did well with the chance, finishing with the first double-digit scoring performance of his career. Queta has spent most of the campaign in the G League with Stockton, averaging 16.0 points, 7.9 boards and 1.9 blocks over 13 games.

  • Kings' Neemias Queta: Plays first game since Dec. 20

    Queta (COVID-19 health and safety protocols) tallied 21 points (9-13 FG, 2-3 FT), 12 rebounds, one assist and one block in 29 minutes Wednesday for the G League's Stockton Kings in the affiliate's 103-80 win over the Birmingham Squadron.

    Queta entered the protocols Dec. 21, but he was cleared to rejoin the Kings on Dec. 30. He didn't appear in any games for the NBA team before being assigned to Stockton, and he looked plenty healthy Wednesday in his first game action at either level in about two and a half weeks. Even with a pair of frontcourt contributors in Richaun Holmes and Chimezie Metu in the protocols, Sacramento isn't expected to have room for Queta in the rotation in the near future.

  • Kings' Neemias Queta: Clears protocols

    Queta has cleared health and safety protocols ahead of Friday's game against the Mavericks, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports.

    Queta was the last member of the Kings still remaining in the league's health and safety protocols. With his clearance, the team will be 100 percent healthy going into Friday's game against Dallas. Queta has appeared in just two games this season as he's spent most of his time playing for the Stockton Kings in the NBA G League.

  • Kings' Neemias Queta: Placed in COVID-19 protocols

    Queta was placed in the league's health and safety protocols Tuesday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Queta was called up to the Kings when Alex Len and Marvin Bagley entered COVID-19 protocols. The rookie second-round pick appeared in two games, totaling five rebounds, two assists and one block across 10 minutes. His potential absence shouldn't impact the Kings' rotations, but Sacramento may be in the market for frontcourt depth after losing another big man to the NBA's protocols.

  • Kings' Neemias Queta: Efficient performance in win

    Queta ended with 20 points (8-10 FG, 2-4 FT), 11 rebounds, two blocks and one steal across 26 minutes during Saturday's 113-109 win over South Bay.

    The rookie out of Utah State had South Bay's number all weekend long during Stockton's two matchups against the team. Queta averaged 19.5 points, 13.5 rebounds and 2.5 blocks over 26.5 minutes per game over the team's two appearances. Impressively, the 7-footer did this all on 56 percent shooting as well.

  • Kings' Neemias Queta: Big double-double Friday

    Queta posted 19 points (9-20 FG, 1-2 FT), 16 rebounds, three blocks and one steal in 27 minutes during Friday's 112-102 defeat to South Bay.

    It was an impressive interior effort for the Utah State product as he led Stockton in rebounds and blocks during the team's loss. Queta has now posted back-to-back double-doubles and is averaging 21.0 points and 15.0 rebounds in those two contests. The center will look to extend that streak when the team rematches South Bay on Saturday.

  • Kings' Neemias Queta: Monster double-double Monday

    Queta recorded 23 points (8-13 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 4-6 FT), 14 rebounds, two assists and a block over 38 minutes during Stockton's 96-86 loss to the Ignite on Monday.

    The rookie out of Utah State dropped his second double-double in his last three showings during Stockton's loss Monday. Queta continues to provide on both ends for Stockton as he is averaging 14.9 points. 8.5 rebounds and 2.4 blocks per game over his first eight showings in the G League.

  • Kings' Neemias Queta: Monstrous performance Friday

    Queta scored 24 points (9-14 FG, 3-6 FT), 16 rebounds, seven blocks, two assists and two steals in 29 minutes during Friday's 102-84 win over the Stars.

    The rookie out of Utah State nearly recorded a triple-double with blocks during Stockton's blowout win Friday. Queta is averaging 14.0 points, 8.3 rebounds and 2.7 blocks across 25.8 minutes per game during his first six appearances with the team.

  • Kings' Neemias Queta: Impressive outing

    Queta scored 10 points (5-11 FG) to go with seven rebounds, five blocks, two steals and one assist in 27 minutes during Tuesday's 122-119 win over the Stars.

    The second-round draft pick impressed on both ends of the floor during Tuesday's victory. It should come as no surprise to see Queta reject five shots as he ranked fifth in block percentage out of all eligible NCAA players last year with Utah State. The 7-footer is on a two-way contract this season, so it wouldn't be surprising to see Queta get called up sooner rather than later if he can keep producing in the G League.
