The Sacramento Kings have signed free agent forward Nemanja Bjelica to a three year deal worth $20.5 million, according to Yahoo’s Shamd Charania. Per Shams the final year will be non-guaranteed, so this essentially boils down to two years at about $6.8 million per year.

Bjelica is a good three point shooter and fits primarily as a stretch four. He also played extensive minutes at small forward for the Minnesota Timberwolves when Jimmy Butler was injured.

After signing Bjelica and Yogi Ferrell the Kings are left with somewhere around $10 million in cap space. The Kings currently have 16 players on the roster and will need to cut down to 15 or fewer before the season begins.
