EuroLeague Most Valuable Player Sasha Vezenkov — a sharpshooting 6-foot-9 forward for Olympiacos in Greece — has agreed on a three-year, $20 million contract to join the Sacramento Kings, his agents Mark Bartelstein and George Roussakis of Priority Sports told ESPN on Saturday.
Vezenkov, 27, is expected to play a formidable role with the emerging Western Conference contending Kings.
A native of Bulgaria, Vezenkov is considered one of the world’s most consistent shot-makers. He’s a career 40% three-point shooter in the EuroLeague and remarkably efficient 63% shooter from two-point range.
Vezenkov has also twice been named the MVP of the Greek League.
The Kings acquired the draft rights to Vezenkov in a trade with the Cleveland Cavaliers for a second-round pick in last year’s draft.
