Kings’ Buddy Hield, Jabari Parker arrive in Orlando for NBA restart

Almost all Kings players now are in Orlando, Fla.

Shooting guard Buddy Hield and forward Jabari Parker arrived at the Disney World campus Sunday, Kings coach Luke Walton told reporters.

Hield and Parker contracted the coronavirus and didn’t travel with the team to Orlando last week. Parker had been in Chicago, where he lives.

Before either player can join the team, they must complete the NBA’s testing protocol.

On Sunday morning, Hield posted a video while walking to a private jet, indicating that he was set to travel to Orlando.

Center Alex Len also tested positive for the coronavirus recently, but he hasn’t been cleared to join the Kings in Orlando.

On Friday, Walton told reporters that a fourth member of the Kings’ traveling party tested positive for the coronavirus before the team left Sacramento, but he didn’t specify if the person was a player or not.

The Kings will scrimmage three times, with the first occurring on July 22 before beginning the seeding games on July 31 against the San Antonio Spurs.

Sacramento now has 15 players in Orlando.
