Lydon (hip) was waived by the Kings on Monday, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Lydon was let go to free up a roster spot for DaQuan Jeffries, who was claimed off waivers and signed to a two-way contract Monday. The 23-year-old Lydon sat out the team's final preseason game due to a hip injury, so he may have to prove his health before finding work elsewhere.
Lydon (hip) will not play in Wednesday's exhibition game against Melbourne United.
Lydon has been nursing right hip inflammation all week and will miss Sacramento's final exhibition as a result. It remains to be seen whether he'll be healthy for the start of the regular season next week.
Lydon will not play in Monday's preseason game against the Jazz due to right hip inflammation, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports.
Neither the severity of Lydon's injury or how he suffered it are clear at this point, but it will leave him sidelined for at least one contest. This is the Kings' last preseason game, so Lydon will have a little over a week to recover before the start of the regular season.
