The Sacramento Kings announced that they have officially signed Rajon Rondo, Kosta Koufos, and Marco Belinelli on Monday. These moves were reported during the free agency moratorium, but made final after the players completed physicals in Sacramento on Sunday.
The players then flew out to Las Vegas for the signings, with a flight crew that included new Kings Caron Butler and Omri Casspi. The deals for Casspi and Butler weren't completed today, as the various offseason moves need to be completed in a very specific order to fit under the salary cap. Nonetheless, this looks like it would be the most fun flight I can imagine.
And I desperately want a Vlade hug.
The Kings also shared pictures of the signings being made official.

Man, Marco looks good. That looks like he signed his contract in 1952.
We'll continue to keep you updated as other moves become official. In the meantime, if you're in Vegas I highly recommend figuring out where these guys are partying tonight. Vlade, Peja, Omri, Marco, Rajon, Kosta, Boogie. Heck yes. Only one who won't be there is Rudy Gay. Why? Glad you asked.
