Free agent center Dewayne Dedmon has agreed to a three-year, $41 million deal with the Sacramento Kings as first reported by Shams Charania of The Athletic.

Dedmon, a six-year NBA veteran, spent last season with the Atlanta Hawks, where he averaged 10.8 points and 7.5 rebounds per game. He also played with the Warriors, the 76ers, the Magic and the Spurs before playing in Atlanta.
The Kings needed to bolster their frontcourt, as Willie Cauley-Stein will likely be gone after free agency ends. With Dedmon’s help, the Kings could make another playoff push like last season.
