Kent Bazemore, a player with ten years of experience in the game, has set his sights on Sacramento once again, having closed a one-year agreement with the Kings, as reported by Shams Charania of The Athletic.

Following a season where he saw little action with the Lakers, Bazemore expressed his excitement about reuniting with his former team and coach Mike Brown via a tweet.

Bazemore put up averages of 10.3 points, 4.9 rebounds, and 1.3 assists in 25 matches for the Kings during the 2019-20 season.

At 33 years of age, Bazemore had the opportunity to play under Brown’s direction during the 2020-21 season, while Brown was an assistant coach for the Golden State Warriors.

Brown was appointed as the head coach of the Kings last May, triumphing over other seasoned head coaches like Mike D’Antoni, Steve Clifford, and Mark Jackson.

During his time with the Lakers last season, the 6’4″ small forward/shooting guard managed to secure an average of 3.4 points, 1.8 rebounds, and 0.9 assists in limited appearances, a distance away from his career-best scoring performance of 13.1 points during his initial tenure with the Lakers in 2013-14.

Bazemore is set to bring his experience and versatility on the wing to the Kings, who concluded the previous season with a record of 30-52, landing at the 12th spot in the Western Conference standings.

In addition to Bazemore, the Kings have also acquired ex-Laker Malik Monk to complement De’Aaron Fox, Harrison Barnes, and Domantas Sabonis.
