The win-now Kings or, at the very least the were making the playoffs this year Kings have chosen to utilize their last roster i’m all over this another veteran who is able to provide them with minutes during the period of an extended season.
Sacramento decided to recreate former King and 10-year veteran Kent Bazemore, a tale broken by Shams Charania of The Athletic and confirmed by Bazemore.
That is undoubtedly for the veteran minimum, and we’ll find out within the next 48 hours if it’s fully or partially guaranteed.
Bazemore was a veteran leader on a Kings team for section of the 2019-20 season. Last season he signed with the Lakers (rather than the Warriors) as a switchable 3&D wing. However, shot around 30% from 3 for a lot of the growing season and began to lose minutes to Avery Bradley (a Frank Vogel favorite). Then eventually Malik Monk and Austin Reeves became better wing options and Bazemore was from the rotation.
In Sacramento he is able to play some at the three behind Harrison Barnes, and several two (although new coach Mike Brown could have lots of wing and shooting options this year). Bazemore played for Brown in Golden State, and he should provide depth for a Kings team that’s all in on ending its 16-year playoff drought.
