Kings Offseason

Skal Labissiere reunites with Kings, agrees to one-year contract

NBC Universal, Inc.

The Kings are reuniting with a familiar face.

Sacramento has agreed to a one-year contract with Skal Labissière, his agent told The Athletic's Shams Charania on Monday. Charania added that the deal is partially guaranteed. The Sacramento Bee's Jason Anderson also reported that the deal is an Exhibit 10 contract, and Labissière likely will play for the G League Stockton Kings.

Labissière, who was selected in the first round of the 2016 NBA Draft, spent three seasons in Sacramento before being traded to the Portland Trail Blazers in 2019.

In 106 games with the Kings, he averaged eight points on 47.5-percent shooting, along with 4.5 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 18.5 minutes played.

Labissière will be the latest Kentucky addition to Sacramento, alongside fellow Wildcats De'Aaron Fox, Malik Monk, Trey Lyles and Nerlens Noel.

After his time in Sacramento and Portland, Labissière jumped around the NBA and G League before playing overseas with Cangrejeros de Santurce, the Capitanes de Ciudad de Mexico and the Grises de Humacao.

He's spent the last three seasons away from the NBA, but the Kings see some potential in the 6-foot-10's ability and added more depth at center in their organization.
