Edwards was selected by the Oklahoma City Blue with the No. 13 overall pick in Monday's G League Draft.
Edwards reached a deal with the Kings in December but was quickly waived. The Purdue product averaged 9.2 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 38 games a season ago for the Canton Charge.
Edwards was waived by the Kings on Saturday, Sportando.com reports.
Edwards recently inked a deal with the Kings, but he was waived shortly after, potentially in a deal to acquire his G League rights. The 24-year-old appeared in 38 G League games last season, averaging 9.2 points and 4.7 rebounds per contest during that time.
Edwards was dealt to the Charge on Sunday in exchange for Tyler Cook.
The Blue and Charge also exchanged picks in the 2020 G League draft. Edwards averaged 11.0 points, 5.3 rebounds, 2.3 threes and 1.8 assists in 25.9 minutes per game while starting 13 of the Blue's 29 games.
Edwards posted 35 points (13-14 FG, 7-8 3Pt, 1-1 FT) to go with 11 rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks across 33 minutes Tuesday in the Oklahoma City Blue's 137-118 win over the Long Island Nets.
Edwards' previous season high in scoring had been just 20 points, but he cruised past that mark thanks to some unbelievable shooting from the floor and from three-point range. Even after the monstrous outing, Edwards is averaging 11.0 points, 5.3 rebounds and 2.3 three-pointers per game, so his fantasy upside is far more limited when he's not knocking down shots at a 92.8 percent rate.
Edwards registered 11 points (4-10 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 2-5 FT), 14 rebounds and one assist across 31 minutes during Saturday's 111-108 win over Salt Lake City.
It was not Edwards' most efficient night from the field, but his season-high 14 rebounds helped him reach his second double-double of the year. The 23-year-old is averaging 10.0 points, 4.9 rebounds and 1.8 assists on the season.
Edwards finished with 18 points (6-9 FG, 6-8 3Pt, 1-1 FT), two assists, one rebound and one steal across 22 minutes during Tuesday's 149-140 G League victory over the South Bay Lakers.
Edwards found success from deep, hitting a season-high six threes to supplement Justin Patton's 45-point explosion that powered the Blue's victory. Not usually a key contributor on offense, Edwards' 18 points ranked as his second-highest scoring performance on the season. Through 19 G League games, Edwards is averaging 8.9 points, 4.8 rebounds and 1.7 assists.
Edwards collected 17 points (5-8 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT) and added six rebounds and two assists across 24 minutes during Sunday's 118-111 G League loss to the Capital City Go-Go.
The Blue have had to lean on Edwards a bit more in recent weeks while Kadeem Jack remains sidelined with a concussion. Edwards impressed in this one, hitting three of six attempts from beyond the arc while finishing with 17 points. He's taken advantage oh his expanded role, hitting 17 of 28 field goals during Jack's absence, but it remains to be seen if his efforts will earn him more floor time upon Jack's eventual return.
Edwards (shoulder) returned from injury and tallied 10 points (4-8 FG, 2-5 3Pt), two rebounds and two assists across 28 minutes of G League action during Sunday's 112-89 victory over the Skyforce.
Edwards missed two weeks dealing with a shoulder injury, but he looked good in his return, recording his second-highest scoring total of the season. The 23-year-old averaged 34.4 minutes over his past five games before the injury, so he's still got room to add minutes and in turn production if he returns to his full-time role.
Edwards (shoulder) remained sidelined for Saturday's game against Rio Grande.
Edwards had previously been listed with both a shoulder and hip injury, but now only the shoulder injury appeared on the injury report. The extent of the injury remains unknown, and Myke Henry and Kadeem Jack will continue to snag some extra minutes until Edwards returns.
Edwards missed Friday's game due to left hip and left shoulder injuries.
Edwards' body betrayed him Wednesday, as he suffered two separate injuries during his 36 minutes against the Stars. It's unclear which injury is of greater concern or when he'll be able to return. In the meantime, forwards Myke Henry and Kadeem Jack figure to benefit from an uptick in minutes while Edwards is sidelined.
Edwards registered nine points (3-10 FG, 2-9 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three steals, two rebounds and an assist across 20 minutes of G League action during Saturday's 127-116 loss to Texas.
Edwards' contributions outside of scoring couldn't salvage a mediocre shooting performance, though three steals are nothing to scoff at. On the season, he's averaging 4.6 points on 32.1 percent shooting to go along with 3.6 rebounds per game.
Edwards agreed to terms with the Thunder on Saturday, Maddie Lee of The Oklahoman reports. He was subsequently waived and is expected to join the G League's Oklahoma City Blue.
Edwards, who appeared in two games for the Rockets last year, scored three points in 16 total minutes of play. He'll likely join the Thunder's G-League affiliate, the Oklahoma City Blue.
Edwards was recalled from the G League on Thursday, Kelly Iko of The Athletic reports.
Edwards has played just 16 total NBA minutes, so his presence shouldn't affect the Rockets' rotation. He'll likely continue to spend most of his time in the G League.
The Rockets assigned Edwards to the G League's Rio Grande Valley Vipers on Monday.
He'll move back to the affiliate while the Rockets bring in Gary Clark and Isaiah Hartenstein from Rio Grande Valley ahead of Monday's matchup with the Mavericks. Edwards, who has been playing on a two-way contract with Houston this season, has appeared in just two games at the NBA level.
Edwards has been recalled from the G League, Alykhan Bijani of The Athletic reports.
The Rockets sent Danuel House down to the Rio Grande Valley Vipers, and they'll recall Edwards in his place, essentially swapping one wing out for another. Edwards has appeared in just one NBA game this season, but given the Rockets' laundry list of injuries, he could be called into action over the next handful of games.
Edwards (undisclosed) did not play in Monday's contest against South Bay.
The starting small forward for the Vipers, Edwards was just coming off one of his best performances with the team prior to suffering any injury. It's unclear if the 23-year-old is slated to miss extended time, or if Monday's designation was purely a maintenance-related issue.
Edwards scored 17 points (7-15 FG, 3-10 3Pt) to go along with nine rebounds and three assists in the loss Thursday to the Blue.
Edwards continues to see plenty of playing time when he's available for the Vipers, as the two-way player is now averaging 34.6 minutes in three games. The forward started at point guard Thursday and could continue to see time there if Angel Rodriguez remains limited with an undisclosed injury.
Edwards' contract was converted to a two-way on Saturday, Colton Jones of Amicohoops.net reports.
Edwards was selected with the 52nd overall pick in the 2018 Draft and is set to spend most of the season in the G-League. In 53 preseason minutes, the Purdue product recorded 11 points, eight boards, three assists, three blocks and one steal. He fired 12 three-pointers, but converted just three.
Edwards had three points (1-2 FG, 1-2 3Pt) and three rebounds in eight minutes during Tuesday's 131-115 win over the Grizzlies.
Edwards appears to have shaken off the strained adductor that was forcing him to sit out practices last week. Despite the window of opportunity provided by the offseason departures of forwards Trevor Ariza and Luc Mbah a Moute, Edwards is unlikely to play a significant role as a rookie.
Edwards (adductor) is still sitting out practices, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Edwards strained his adductor slipping on a wet spot just before camp and has been sidelined ever since. The second-round rookie appeared to be a long shot to join the regular rotation as a rookie and his continued absence will only further dampen his chances of doing so. He'll remain day-to-day moving forward towards the preseason opener Tuesday against the Grizzlies.
