Veteran power forward/center Richaun Holmes has signed a four-year contract worth up to $55 million with the Sacramento Kings in free agency, according to Shams Charania. Holmes is coming off a career season where he averaged 14.2 points and 8.3 rebounds per game across 61 contests. He previously signed a two-year, $9.77 million deal with the Sacramento Kings.

Holmes has carved out a role as a rotation big man, helping the Kings stabilize their frontcourt. He is not a three-point shooter and although that limits his upside, he’ll still have value as a role player. In the last three seasons, Holmes is averaging 11.3 points and 6.8 rebounds per game and has steadily improved every year. At 28, he’s entering the prime of his career and should be good addition to the TEAM.
