ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that free agent power forward and Memphis Mt. Rushmore candidate Zach Randolph has signed a two-year, $24M contract with the Sacramento Kings. The person spoke to the Assssociated Pre on condition of anonymity because the deal can not be signed until Thursday.
The Kings are after veteran leadership during the free agency period with not only Randolph, but bringing in combo guard George Hill on a three-year deal.
The Sacramento Kings just got KANGZ-y by throwing a bunch of money at two free agents we weren't expecting them to get... and it actually worked. Sacramento went 30-52 last season, Joerger's first year, and has not made the playoffs since 2006. His veteran presence should help an otherwise young Kings squad improve leaps and bounds in 2017-18.
Hill had previously been linked to the Lakers, who wanted him on a one-year deal. He has scored in double figures in each of the last 14 seasons and tallied a solid 14.1 points and 8.2 rebounds per game in 2016-17. He last appeared in a game on February 15.
