Rookie Eric Moreland is on the move.  The 6-foot-10, 218-pound defensive specialist is on his way to the Bighorns, the Sacramento Kings’ hybrid D-League affiliate in Reno, Nevada.

Moreland has yet to log a minute of action through four games this season with the Kings after joining the club as an undrafted free agent this summer.  He played just 20 minutes over three preseason games, totaling four points, five rebounds and two blocks.

The 22-year-old big man will play for newly hired David Arseneault Jr. and a new cast of D-League characters.  The Kings retain the rights to recall Moreland at anytime and he remains a member of Sacramento’s 14-man roster.
