George Hill and Zach Randolph deals are a mixed bag for Kings

However, it was his most productive season as a professional, as Hill averaged 16.9 points, 4.2 assists and 3.4 rebounds per game while shooting 40.3 percent from three-point range.

Sources told ESPN, the free agent has agreed to a two-year, $24 million deal with the Sacramento Kings.

The Kings started free agency with just two players on the roster who are not on their rookie contracts - guard Garrett Temple and center Kosta Koufos - and were seeking some proven players to provide stability.

As per usual with most things Kings, they've managed to do something weird that doesn't make complete sense. At the same time, however, limiting their minutes and opportunities with three years of Hill - and hurting their chances of tanking success in a season that should be about youth development alone - isn't ideal.

This will also be Randolph's fifth team to play on since starting his career back in 2001. Yahoo Sports first reported the deal, saying Hill would get $57 million over three years.

Hill battled injury issues while appearing in only 49 games during the 2016-2017 season for the Jazz. The team selected fellow point guard De'Aaron Fox No. 5 overall in last month's draft.
