Lawrence Funderburke, who spent the last three seasons in Europe, added 17 points and eight rebounds for the Kings (3-2). Terry Dehere had 15.
Mitch Richmond, coming off a 20-point performance in his preseason debut in Portland on Friday night, had 11 points in 24 minutes. He missed the Kings' first three exhibition games because of an Achilles' tendon injury.
