According to an NBA source, the Sacramento Kings waived Sim Bhullar, David Wear and Deonte Burton following the team’s 91-57 victory over Maccabi Haifa Saturday night in Sacramento.

Bhullar played less than three total minutes over the Kings’ first five preseason games.  The 7-foot-5 center out of New Mexico State scored his first career bucket on a finger roll lay-up in the final seconds of Saturday’s game.  According to league source, he will join the Reno Bighorns, the Sacramento Kings D-League affiliate.

Wear played the final 3:11 of the fourth quarter against Maccabi for his only appearance of the preseason and Burton failed to see the court in his stint in Sacramento.
