The Sacramento Kings have reached an agreement with Kosta Koufos, according to ESPN's Marc Stein. Koufos will come to Sacramento on a four-year deal worth $33 million, which is a fantastic price for such a solid big man. That amounts to about $8.25 million per season. The deal also includes a player option on the fourth year.

This is a fantastic value for a player of Koufos' caliber. As a back-up big man he's one of the best in the league. He also has the capability to play alongside DeMarcus Cousins as a starter. Another bonus of this signing is George Karl's familiarity with Kosta, as the two overlapped in Denver. Karl was a big fan of Koufos.

From Jeff Morton of SB Nation's Denver Stiffs:

The Kings probably need to add another wing, which Kings fans are hoping might be Omri Casspi. But as far as I can tell, the Kings have compiled an excellent front court rotation and addressed many of the depth issues that plagued the team last season.
