Kings, Bjelica Agree To Three-Year Deal

The Sacramento Kings and forward Nemanja Bjelica have agreed to a three-year deal worth $20.5 million, according to Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports.

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.”
