Report: Cory Joseph agrees to three-year, $37 million contract with Kings
Sacramento is set at point guard, De’Aaron Fox made huge leaps in his second season and the job will be his for years to come.
Now there just won’t be much of a drop-off when he goes to the bench.
Sacramento has reached an agreement with Cory Joseph on a three-year, $37 million contract, reports Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports.

Joseph leaves Indiana for his new home.
He’s a solid backup point guard who is not great shooting from three (32 percent last season) but is an excellent floor general, sets guys up, and doesn’t turn the ball over. He’s a player Vlade Divac tried to sign two years ago when Joseph went to Indiana, now he’s landed his man.
To make this happen, Willie Cauley-Stein gets his wish and is now a free agent.

Also, the Kings rescinded Willie Cauley-Stein’s qualifying offer to free up this money, making him an unrestricted free agent.
