Report: Kings reach deal with Koufos

The Kings and Kosta Koufos reached agreement on a four-year, $33-million contract Saturday, Marc Stein of ESPN.com reported, the third free-agent strike by Sacramento in two days.

Koufos, who has played for four teams in seven seasons, most recently the last two campaigns with the Grizzlies, will back up center DeMarcus Cousins and joins a big-man rotation in transition. Jason Thompson and Carl Landry were both traded to the 76ers, while the Kings spent their lottery pick on Willie Cauley-Stein, who begins summer league next week in Las Vegas with a good chance to become the opening-night starting power forward.

The Koufos deal, which can become official Friday, comes a day after the Kings agreed to terms with Rajon Rondo and Marco Belinelli.

    The Kings are doing well with their signings but the are rounding up the fort on head cases and egos. Including ownership and the head coach. I am more excited for them than the Fakers.

    The Kings have done quite well but much will depend on how Rondo fits in and gets on with the coach.

    After Belinelli, Koufos. Another sensible boy in that nightmare of a franchise.
    Too little to compensate for DMC and Rondo.
    Well, at least Marco and Kosta will get a few $$$ to pay for the stress relief sessions.

      Carlo joins the Geniuses raking the Kings for dumping ~$20 million a year on post-up players languishing behind DMC. Anyobe else? Bring it now, by December you’ll have forgotten.
