Signs two-year, $24 million deal with Kings

Randolph, 35, averaged 14.1 points and 8.2 rebounds last season with the Grizzlies.

Randolph inked a two-year, $24 million contract with the Kings on Tuesday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Randolph has more post moves and jab-steps then anybody in the league, so having him to teach Skal Labissiere and Willie Cauley-Stein for two seasons bodes well for their development. He also dished out 4.2 assists per game and shot 47.7 percent from the floor and 40.3 percent from 3-point range.

He is the second vet the Kings have signed today, along with point guard George Hill.

However, on the flip side of these benefits, there are some obvious concerns. Obviously, you can't hand the keys of a team to a 19-year old point guard and a bunch of young guys with no veteran help.

Hill has averaged 11.8 points and 3.3 assists during his nine-year career. He played in just 49 games due to an assortment of injuries.

Randolph is turning 36 but is still a productive frontcourt player. Yahoo Sports first reported the deal, saying Hill would get $57 million over three years.
