Caboclo turned in four points (2-7 FG, 0-3 3Pt), three rebounds, one assist and one steal across 19 minutes in Monday's 118-100 loss to the Timberwolves.
With veteran Zach Randolph logging a DNP-CD, Caboclo saw the floor for the first time since being traded to the Kings, serving as starter Skal Labissiere's backup on the night. The 22-year-old had only logged a grand total of seven minutes across two contests this season while with the Raptors, and Monday's allotment of playing time was actually a career high. Caboclo was initially believed to be a candidate for release shortly after his arrival, but Sacramento will apparently opt to give him some run in what would be his first extended stint of action as a pro.
Caboclo was inactive for Sunday's game against the Timberwolves, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
It's unclear exactly when Caboclo will make his Kings debut, but the fact that he is with the team Sunday suggests that his time is drawing near. His next opportunity to suit up will be Tuesday in Dallas.
Caboclo is expected to be with the team, but still must pass his physicals and is unlikely to suit up. It's also unclear what his role on the team will be, as the Kings have plenty of young talent on the wing and at the forward spots.
Caboclo was sent from the Raptors to the Kings in exchange for Malachi Richardson earlier Thursday, but word following the trade was that he was going to be waived. That's no longer the case, as the Kings have opted to waive former first-rounder Georgios Papagiannis instead, while keeping Caboclo on the roster. That being said, Caboclo is still buried on the forward depth chart and remains very inexperienced on game day considering he's yet to play double-digit outings in a season so far in his career. He's unlikely to be worthy of fantasy consideration.
Caboclo will be waived by the Kings following Thursday's trade, Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee reports.
Caboclo was dealt to the Kings in exchange for Malachi Richardson earlier Thursday, but his stay in Sacramento won't be long. He's expected to be let go and once he clears waivers, should become an unrestricted free agent. The 6-foot-9, former first-round pick failed to develop in his four years with Toronto and could struggle to find suitors elsewhere once cleared of waivers. It wouldn't be surprising if he ended overseas or in the G-League for the remainder of the 2017-18 campaign.
