Kings Claim Travis Outlaw Off Amnesty Waivers, According To Report

Former New Jersey Nets forward Travis Outlaw has been claimed off amnesty waivers by the Sacramento Kings, according to Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski. Terms of the Kings' bid for Outlaw's services have not been disclosed.

Outlaw signed a five-year, $35 million contract with the Nets as a free agent in July 2010, and that contract was widely panned even before Outlaw shot 37.5 percent from the field and scored 9.2 points per game in nearly 30 minutes a night with the Nets in the 2010-11 season. Outlaw was waived by the Nets under the amnesty clause of the new NBA collective bargaining agreement on Thursday, clearing cap room for a New Jersey team that may be trying to make space for Orlando center Dwight Howard.

The Kings will add Outlaw to a young frontcourt that includes J.J. Hickson, Jason Thompson, and DeMarcus Cousins.
