Oct 22, 2016 3:55 PM

Steve Blake has signed with the Sydney Kings of Australia.

Blake played for the Detroit Pistons last season.

"Any time you have someone of that experience it means a lot," coach Andrew Gaze said. "He's played at the highest level for such a long period of time. He's played with some of the greatest players in the world.

"The role that we have for him is something that is going to be an adjustment for us and an adjustment for him, and hopefully it can all work out and be beneficial for both."
