Sampson was let go by the Bulls on Saturday.
Sampson couldn't impress the coaching staff enough to make the final roster. He averaged 15.6 minutes per game in 22 appearances with the Kings last season, averaging 4.7 points and 3.5 rebounds. He's a strong candidate to spend time in the G-League this season.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Sampson signed with the Nuggets after being waived by the 76ers midway through last season. He went on to start 22 contests with Denver, averaging 5.2 points and 2.3 assists in 18.0 minutes per game. While Sampson fared better in Denver than Philadelphia, he was still fairly unimpressive and finds himself on the fringe of the roster entering the preseason. The two-year deal Sampson signed in February is non-guaranteed for 2016-17, so the Nuggets can waive him without penalty, if they so choose. Sampson has more NBA experience than some of the other players he'll compete against in camp, but he's far from a guarantee to crack the final 15-man team.
Undrafted out of St. John's University, Sampson signed a four-year, partially-guaranteed deal with the 76ers prior to the start of training camp. His contract for the next two seasons does not guarantee until mid-January. Sampson was in and out of the rotation until he solidified a reserve role in January, and he averaged 5.2 points, 2.2 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 0.5 steals, and 0.4 blocks in 15 minutes per game over 74 games. A noted defensive specialist, Sampson converted 42 percent of his field goals, 67 percent of his free-throws, and hit 31-of-127 three-pointers after attempting 13 combined in his two collegiate seasons. Sampson, the hand-me-down swiss army knife, became an emergency player for coach Brett Brown, occasionally starting at point guard and stealing minutes at center. The 6-foot-9 positionless basketball player with wild hair could be seen relentlessly attacking the offensive glass and throwing down thunderous jams on account of his unbridled athleticism. For all his effectiveness near the rim, Sampson doesn't help space the floor, a necessity with Nerlens Noel and Jahlil Okafor the presumed starters in the frontcourt.
