Report: Kings Claim Travis Outlaw From Amnesty Waivers
The Sacramento Kings have claimed Travis Outlaw from amnesty waivers, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.
Outlaw was cut by the New Jersey Nets under the amnesty clause in the new CBA with 4 years and $28 million remaining on his contract. The amnesty waiver process features a bidding component whereby claiming teams put in bids on the player; the highest bidder is awarded the player, and the player’s previous team pays the difference between the old contract and the new bid. The Kings’ bid on Outlaw was undisclosed.
Earlier reports had indicated that the New York Knicks had interest in Outlaw should he have cleared the amnesty waivers process.
