Sasha Vezenkov Seriously Considering Signing With Kings For 23-24 Season

May 12, 2023 4:09 PM

Sasha Vezenkov is seriously considering signing with the Sacramento Kings, a source told Marc Stein.

The Kings own the NBA draft rights to Vezenkov, who was a second round pick in 2017 by the Brooklyn Nets. Vezenkov's draft rights were traded from the Nets to the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2021 and from the Cavaliers to the Kings last year.

In 61 games this season with Olympiacos, Vezenkov is averaging 17.3 points, 6.5 rebounds and 1.9 assists. 

One insider described Vezenkov joining the Kings this offseason as "inevitable."

"He shoots the 3-ball," Mike Brown told a group of Greek reporters when watching him play this week. "He’s got size. He’s got toughness. He rebounds. All those things are exciting with the way we play the game of basketball.”
