Ex-Jayhawk Chenowith cut

October 11, 2001


— Former Kansas University center Eric Chenowith has been cut again.

Chenowith, a 7-footer from Orange, Calif., was one of three players sliced from the Sacramento Kings' roster on Wednesday.

He had joined the Kings' NBA camp after being set loose by the New York Knicks late last week. Chenowith was a second-round pick of the Knicks in the 2001 NBA Draft.

"We are a loaded team here," a Kings' spokesman said Wednesday night. "We have 12 guaranteed contracts and are at the luxury tax number and can't go over. We are set with big men with Vlade (Divac), Scot (Pollard), Mario Bennett, Lawrence Funderburke, Chris (Webber), guys like that."

It is highly likely Chenowith will resurface in the new National Basketball Developmental League.

Former Jayhawk Kenny Gregory has said he would attend draft camp of that league, Oct. 26-Nov. 3 in Atlanta. Chenowith recently told the Journal-World he would not be against playing in the NBDL. Player personnel director is former Jayhawk Milt Newton.
