The Kings assigned second-year center Georgios Papagiannis and rookie forward Justin Jackson to their G-League team, the Reno Bighorns, on Friday. The Bighorns host Salt Lake City at Golden 1 Center in Sacramento today at 4 p.m.

Both were assigned to the Bighorns on Friday and played in the Bighorns’ 125-104 loss to Northern Arizona in Reno. Both were recalled for Saturday’s Kings’ game against Denver, but did not play.

Papagiannis had nine points and 12 rebounds Friday for the Bighorns. Jackson had 13 points and five rebounds.
