Report: Suns, Warriors Vying To Sign Kings Castoff J.J. Hickson

J.J. Hickson was just waived a few hours ago by the Sacramento Kings, but teams are already lining up to acquire the free-agent big man. Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports that the Golden State Warriors and Phoenix Suns have emerged as the frontrunners for Hickson.

Hickson and the Kings agreed to a buyout today on the $2.3 he had left on his contract. Once the 23-year-old power forward clears waivers, he'll be free to sign with a new team, and he wants to find a new club that will give him playing time and a chance to showcase himself for free agency this summer.

Hickson, the No. 19 overall pick in the 2008 NBA draft, was promising last season for the Cleveland Cavaliers, averaging 13.8 points and 8.7 rebounds per contest. The Cavs traded him to Sacramento for Omri Casspi before last year's draft.
