A person with knowledge of the deal says the Sacramento Kings and center Kosta Koufos have agreed to a $33 million, four-year contract.

The person, who spoke to The Associated Press on Saturday night on condition of anonymity because contracts can't be completed until next week, said the fourth year is a player option. ESPN first reported the agreement.

Koufos played behind Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph in Memphis the past two seasons. In Sacramento, the 7-footer is another big man for a front court that includes All-Star center DeMarcus Cousins and sixth overall draft pick Willie Cauley-Stein.

Koufos has averaged 5.2 points and 5.3 rebounds in seven seasons. He also has played for Utah, Minnesota and Denver - where he spent parts of three years under current Kings coach George Karl.
