Well technically only the Nexus 5 has Android 4.4 right now. So no theirs nothing official for any carrier yet.

Insertcoin 6.0.5 has sprint support and has some of the kitkat features included but it's still just android 4.3

it's not a true kitkat rom but their is this

Here’s a sentence I never thought I would write outside of making a bad joke — Verizon Wireless is getting the Android 4.4 update to the Moto X before anything else, including Google’s own Nexus 4.
In the world of Android updates, there are a few things you can count on. Nexus devices go first, manufacturers with the most popular phones go next, and Verizon and Sprint usually fight it out for last place. Today marks the first time that basically none of those sentences are true. Motorola has proven their dedication to the Moto X, a phone that has been recently panned for not selling particularly well, by releasing the update to Android 4.4 (KitKat) starting with the Verizon Wireless model.

The google play edition of the one has its forthcoming update at google now,so should be rolling out soon. Not sure if there is a GPE Rom for sprint,but there is potential to port that once the update happens.

A couple weeks ago the timetable was:
-GPE in 15 days
-developer and international WWE in 30 days
-branded carrier variants in 60

Ask Android Central: Google Play edition phones on Verizon or Sprint? | Android Central

Without root your stuck with whatever os you have I personally would at least s off now,while you are able. If you stay stock otherwise otas are not affected,and you never know when the exploits used will be patched. Just my 2 cents

Yup. S-off itself will not hinder your ability to receive otas whatsoever.

You'll just need to stay Stock otherwise
