MINNEAPOLIS - The Kings have waived guard Luther Head.
Head did not dress for Friday night's loss with a sore right calf. Head also had been unhappy with his role for some time and had made his displeasure known and was tossed from a practice this season.
Head was praised for the defense he played earlier in the season but didn't receive consistent playing time.
Head, in his sixth season, appeared in 36 games with 14 starts. He averaged 5.6 points, 1.7 rebounds and 1.9 assists in 16.3 minutes.
Head made 39.1 percent of his three pointers.
With Tyreke Evans (plantar fasciitis) likely to return to the lineup during this five-game road trip, Head wasn't likely to play much the rest of the season. Evans, Marcus Thornton and Beno Udrih will play most of the time at guard when Evans is back on the court.
