SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Kings guard Iman Shumpert was stopped from going into Portland's locker room by arena and Trail Blazers security after Sacramento's 115-107 victory Monday night.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Ending a 14-game losing streak that spanned nearly four years to the San Antonio Spurs didn't mean as much to Sacramento as finishing its quick four-game homestand with an even record.

Kings waive Joe Johnson after trade-deadline acquisition
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Three days after being acquired at the trade deadline, Joe Johnson was waived by the Sacramento Kings on Sunday.
Sacramento announced the move before their game against the Timberwolves on Sunday night. The 36-year-old Johnson was acquired along with guard Iman Shumpert, a 2020 second-round draft choice, the rights to forward Dimitros Agravanis and cash in a three-team trade involving the Cleveland Cavaliers and Utah Jazz.
