The Kings recalled center Georgios Papagiannis and forward Justin Jackson from their G League affiliate, the Reno Bighorns. Both were assigned to the Bighorns on Friday and played in Reno’s 125-104 loss to Northern Arizona that night in Reno.

The Kings host the Denver Nuggets on Saturday night and the Bighorns play Sunday at Golden 1 Center, so both could play for the Bighorns tomorrow.

Papagiannis, a second-year player from Greece, had nine points and 12 rebounds Friday for the Bighorns. Jackson, a rookie from North Carolina, had 13 points and five rebounds.
