The Kings opted not to waive Nemanja Bjelica before Thursday's deadline, meaning that his $7.15 million salary for next season is now fully guaranteed.
Bjelica appeared to be a favorite of Luke Walton last season despite his woeful defense. He can certainly help out a modern NBA offense as a stretch four but it's going to be tough for him to fit in — or at least it should be considering everyone's talent level — with Richaun Holmes, Marvin Bagley and Harrison Barnes all healthy. Bjelica should still be involved as one of the first guys off the bench but anyone expecting a repeat of his top-100 season will need to rely on more injuries to others.
