The Sacramento Kings are finalizing a deal to bring small forward Omri Casspi back to Sacramento, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

Stein added that the deal will be a one-year minimum contract, which should allow the Kings to retain Quincy Acy. It's a great move for the Kings to be able to keep Acy while still adding the player they wanted.

Due to some salary cap magic, the Kings have a way to structure Casspi and Darren Collison's deals to still leave space for one more minimum deal without hitting the luxury tax.  It's widely speculated that the Kings will use that space to add Eric Moreland after his strong showing at summer league.  Friday afternoon Moreland tweeted that he had reached an agreement, but it has yet to be confirmed that he's officially a King.

We'll continue to keep an eye on Moreland's situation.  In the meantime, welcome back to Sacramento, Omri!
