demar derozan

Free agent guard/forward DeMar DeRozan is joining the Sacramento Kings on a three-year, $74 million sign-and-trade deal, ESPN and The Athletic reported Saturday night.

Sacramento is sending forward Harrison Barnes and an unprotected pick swap in the 2031 draft to the San Antonio Spurs while also dealing guard Chris Duarte, two second-round picks and cash to the Chicago Bulls, per ESPN’s report.

DeRozan, 34, averaged 24.0 points, 4.3 rebounds, 5.3 assists and 1.1 steals in 79 games (all starts) for Chicago last season. He played a league-leading 37.8 minutes per game.

A six-time All-Star, DeRozan has career averages of 21.2 points, 4.4 rebounds and 4.1 assists in 1,110 career games (1,098 starts) with the Toronto Raptors (2009-18), San Antonio Spurs (2018-21) and Bulls (2021-24).

The Kings are coming off a season in which they went 46-36, finishing in ninth place in the Western Conference to secure a spot in the play-in tournament. They were not able to get out of the play-in, though, falling to the New Orleans Pelicans after beating the Golden State Warriors.

Barnes, 32, averaged 12.2 points and 3.0 rebounds in 82 games (all starts) with Sacramento in 2023-24.

The 27-year-old Duarte appeared in 59 games (11 starts) for the Kings last season, posting 3.9 points and 1.8 boards per contest.
