Kings' Iman Shumpert will pick up his player option for the 2018-19 season
Sacramento Kings guard/forward Iman Shumpert will pick up his $11 million player option for the 2018-19 season, per Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports.
The move was a no-brainer for Shumpert as he played just 14 games in the 2017-18 season and none after being traded to Sacramento from the Cleveland Cavaliers in February. With the Kings rebuilding, Shumpert is not expected to see much action but will collect a nice paycheck next season.
Shumpert averaged 4.4 points, 2.9 rebounds, and 1.2 assists while shooting 37.9% from the field in 2017-18.
