Bjelica, who is entering his fourth NBA season, played 67 games last season with the Minnesota Timberwoles and averaged 6.8 points per game, while shooting 46.1% from the field and 41.5% from the three-point line.
“I spent a lot of time talking with Vlade and as an icon in our country, he has a unique perspective on what it takes to put yourself in a successful NBA situation and what it takes as a player to perform in that situation,” Bjelica told Yahoo Sports. “The organization’s belief in and commitment to me overwhelmed me and my family. I am ready to do everything I can to help the Kings and be a part of the Sacramento community.”
