Free agent guard Joseph agrees to deal with Kings

Cory Joseph is reportedly headed to the Kings after two seasons with the Pacers.

Free agent point guard Cory Joseph has agreed to a three-year contract with the Sacramento Kings, according to Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports.

The contract is reportedly worth $37 million.

Joseph, 27, spent the previous two seasons with the Indiana Pacers, mostly as a backup for Darren Collison, who left in free agency/retirement.

Joseph averaged 6.5 points, 3.9 assists and 3.4 rebounds in 82 games this past season — but shot just 41 percent from the floor.

The Pacers landed Malcolm Brogdon in a trade with the Milwaukee Bucks and likely will increase the role of second-year point guard Aaron Holiday.

Meanwhile, Joseph is likely to play a backup role to De’Aaron Fox.

The Kings will have to renounce restricted free agent big man Willie Cauley-Stein to accommodate their free-agent signings, which also include Harrison Barnes and Trevor Ariza.
