• Sam Amick of USA Today agreed to terms with the Kings on Sunday.

    The terms are on the way but this is a rumor in the local rumor mill that’s gone around for about a month.  He’s from Sacramento and wanted to return home sources say, and he’ll provide depth that will allow for the Kings to explore trades for Rudy Gay and Ben McLemore.  In a 25 mpg role he can return solid value and though the locals, who are not all fans of Barnes’ behavior, might not like it — this is a good placeholder signing for the Kings.  His experience with Dave Joerger will be helpful, and Joerger’s implicit approval of this move speaks to his appreciation of Barnes as a player, too.  

    Update: CSN Insider and podcast partner James Ham has the terms: Two years and $12 million total with a player option.  We had him projected at $5-7 million for 1-2 years so we hit it right on the head (sort of).  Barnes ranked as our No. 7/8 small forward option in terms of projected price to value.
