  • Kings' Kessler Edwards: Plays 15 minutes Monday

    Edwards totaled three points (1-4 FG, 1-4 3Pt), four rebounds and one block over 15 minutes during Monday's 129-93 loss to the Pelicans.

    Edwards saw increased playing time after Keegan Murray (back) and Chris Duarte (hand) left the contest early. Sasha Vezenkov (thumb) and Keon Ellis (ankle) were ruled out prior to tipoff, and Kevin Huerter played through a finger injury, so it's safe to say Sacramento is banged up at the moment. If any combination of those players misses additional time moving forward, Edwards is a candidate for a solid bench role. However, the Pepperdine product has played double-digit minutes just three times this season, averaging 0.9 points and 1.3 rebounds across eight appearances.

  • Kings' Kessler Edwards: Hauls in four rebounds

    Edwards logged one point (0-2 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four rebounds and one assist in nine minutes during Sunday's 112-99 preseason loss to Toronto.

    Although Edwards played single-digit minutes off the bench during Sunday's preseason opener, he finished second on the team in rebounds. He saw an increase in playing time after being traded from the Nets to the Kings last year, averaging 4.0 points and 2.2 rebounds in 14.6 minutes per game over 21 appearances with Sacramento.

  • Kings' Kessler Edwards: Ruled out Saturday

    Edwards (undisclosed) won't play in Saturday's Summer League against the Bucks, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports.

    Edwards is expected to have a bigger role in Sacramento in 2023-24 after making 24 appearances for the team last year. However, his Summer League campaign is likely over.

  • Kings' Kessler Edwards: Steps it up Thursday

    Edwards logged 18 points (6-10 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 4-5 FT), eight rebounds, five assists and one steal in 31 minutes during Thursday's 93-80 Summer League win over Minnesota.

    Edwards will be relieved after this performance, as he's been having a shaky Summer League so far. In his previous five appearances, Edwards shot just 38.3 percent from the field with averages of 9.6 points, 3.8 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.2 three-pointers.

  • Kings' Kessler Edwards: Staying in Sacramento

    The Kings have picked up Edwards' $1.93 million team option for the 2023-24 season, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Edwards appeared in 22 games with the Kings in 2022-23 after being dealt from Brooklyn midseason. In his time with Sacramento, Edwards averaged 3.9 points, 2.1 rebounds and 1.0 assists over 13.9 minutes per game, but he played a significant role down the stretch, logging 18 or more minutes in 10 of the Kings' final 17 regular-season contests. Though Sacramento opted to bring Edwards back for another year, he'll likely remain toward the tail end of the Kings' rotation.

  • Kings' Kessler Edwards: Fails to score in 10 minutes

    Edwards finished with zero points (0-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt) and one rebound across 10 minutes during Sunday's 109-95 loss to Denver.

    Edwards barely featured in the loss, playing 10 minutes as the Kings went with their second and third units. While he has actually been able to see regular minutes over the past month, Edwards has scored double-digits only three times, failing to have any sort of a tangible impact.

  • Kings' Kessler Edwards: Scores 10 points off bench

    Edwards closed Friday's 138-114 win over the Trail Blazers with 10 points (4-7 FG, 2-4 3Pt), two assists, one block and two steals in 18 minutes.

    Edwards scored in double figures for the first time since March 16 and set a season high with two steals. After being left out of the regular rotation for the majority of the campaign, the second-year forward has claimed a solid reserve role during the second half of March, posting 5.8 points, 2.2 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 16.9 minutes over his past 12 appearances (three starts).

  • Kings' Kessler Edwards: Moves back to bench

    Edwards isn't in the starting five for Friday's game versus the Suns, James Ham of ESPN 1320 Sacramento reports.

    Kevin Huerter will replace Edwards in the starting lineup Friday after missing the previous three games with a knee injury. Edwards is averaging 3.6 points and 2.4 rebounds in 15.0 minutes across his eight games coming off the bench this season.

  • Kings' Kessler Edwards: Will start for injured Huerter

    Edwards will start Saturday's matchup against the Wizards, Gary Gerould of the Kings Radio Network reports.

    With Kevin Huerter (knee) missing his first game since Jan. 13, Edwards will step into the starting lineup. He's been a regular part of the rotation over the past four games, averaging 6.5 points and 3.5 rebounds in 21.5 minutes.

  • Kings' Kessler Edwards: Enters rotation, makes impact

    Edwards played 26 minutes in Saturday's 128-119 win over the Suns, finishing with 12 points (4-6 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, one assist and one steal in 26 minutes.

    After having failed to get off the bench in either of the Kings' previous two contests, Edwards was a surprise entry into the rotation Saturday as a replacement for Terence Davis, who didn't see the floor in a coach's decision. The second-year forward was a plus-18 during his time on the court and played over struggling starter Keegan Murray (15 minutes) down the stretch. Though a 25-plus-minute role won't be guaranteed for Edwards moving forward, expect him to stick in the rotation for at least one more game after his strong showing Saturday.

  • Kings' Kessler Edwards: Headed to Sacramento

    The Nets agreed to deal Edwards and cash to the Kings on Tuesday in exchange for the draft rights to David Michineau, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Edwards still has to technically approve the trade, but that's expected to be the case. Ultimately, moving Edwards is a salary- and luxury tax-saving measure by the Nets. According to Wojnarowski, the Kings are expected to give Edwards run in the G League with the Stockton Kings, though there's always a chance he's re-routed before Thursday's deadline. Edwards has played just 79 NBA minutes this season, totaling 15 points, 14 rebounds, three steals, two assists and one block.

  • Nets' Kessler Edwards: Recalled by Brooklyn

    Edwards was recalled from the G League's Long Island Nets on Friday, Chris Milholen of reports.

    Edwards has been shuffled between Long Island and Brooklyn recently, but he'll rejoin the parent club ahead of Saturday's game against Washington. He hasn't appeared in a game with the parent club since Dec. 10, so it seems unlikely he'll get much playing time if he remains with the team for Saturday's matchup.

  • Nets' Kessler Edwards: Back to G League

    Brooklyn assigned Edwards to the G League's Long Island Nets on Wednesday.

    Edwards was with the NBA squad for only one day and presumably just practiced with the team before heading back to the G League. Across 22 appearances with Long Island, the 22-year-old is averaging 14.7 points, 6.5 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.2 steals in 32.4 minutes per game.

  • Nets' Kessler Edwards: Recalled by Nets

    The Nets summoned Edwards from the team's G League Long Island affiliate Tuesday, Christian Arnold of Associated Press reports.

    Edwards was sent to the affiliate Monday, likely in an attempt to knock some rust off in game action since he hasn't appeared in an NBA game since Dec. 10. The second-year guard has just 13 games under his belt with the Nets and will likely see the vast majority of his playing time in the G League.

  • Nets' Kessler Edwards: Assigned to G League

    Brooklyn assigned Edwards to the G League's Long Island Nets on Monday.

    Edwards didn't appear in any games for Brooklyn during his latest NBA stint and will head to the G League to presumably get some extended run in Long Island's matchup against the Wisconsin Herd on Monday. Across 22 G League appearances this year, the 22-year-old is averaging 14.7 points, 6.5 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.2 steals in 32.4 minutes per game.

  • Nets' Kessler Edwards: Remains key source of scoring

    Edwards finished with 25 points (9-16 FG, 7-12 3Pt), three rebounds, three assists and one block in 32 minutes Wednesday against Capital City.

    Edwards was deadly from beyond the arc, scoring 21 of his 25 points from downtown. He's shooting 37.5 percent from three and 47.9 percent from the field over 12 regular-season matchups.

  • Nets' Kessler Edwards: Posts double-double in win

    Edwards totaled 15 points (5-11 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-3 FT), 13 rebounds, one assist, one steal and two blocks in 38 minutes Monday against Grand Rapids.

    Edwards led his team in rebounds and secured 11 of his 13 boards on the defensive glass. He also played a team-high 38 minutes. Edwards has made his presence known on the defensive end of late, as he's swatted away two shots in back-to-back contests while also collecting a steal in each appearance.
