Confirming @ShamsCharania tweet- the Sacramento Kings have a 3-year, $20.5 million deal in place with Nemanja Bjelica. Year three is non-guaranteed.— James Ham (@James_HamNBCS) July 21, 2018
Yahoo! Sports' Shams Charania first reported the news.
The 6-foot-10 Serbian averaged 6.8 points and 4.1 rebounds in 20.5 minutes per game last season. A source told NBC Sports California's James Ham on Wednesday that the Kings like the Serbian forward's versatility, and believe he can play minutes at the small forward and power forward postions.
Bjelica previously agreed to a one-year deal with the Philadelphia 76ers this summer. He told the team on Monday that he planned on staying in Europe this season, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.
