Keith Smart has agreed to a two-year contract with the Sacramento Kings, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports. Smart is guaranteed through the 2012-13 season.


It was announced earlier Thursday that Paul Westphal had been terminated as head coach of the Kings. Westphal was in charge since 2009-10, and he failed to win 25 games in either of his first two seasons. Smart was an assistant with the team last season, a year after being fired by Golden State after only a season as head coach.
