The Sacramento Kings and free agent Arron Afflalo have reached an agreement on a deal worth $25 million over two years, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of the Vertical.

Afflalo, 30, spent his 2015–16 season playing for the New York Knicks, averaging 12.8 points, 3.7 rebounds and 2.0 assists.

Afflalo signed a two-year, $16 million deal with the Knicks last offseason, but exercised his player option so he could take advantage of the increased salary cap.

A first-round pick by the Detroit Pistons in 2007, Afflalo saw his most success while member of the Orlando Magic, averaging 18.2 points in 35 minutes per game in 2013–14.
