Former Portland Trail Blazers wing Kent Bazemore is celebrating today after signing a one-year contract with the Sacramento Kings. Shams Charania of The Athletic broke the news.
Free agent forward Kent Bazemore has agreed to a one-year deal with the Sacramento Kings, sources tell @TheAthletic @Stadium .
For Bazemore, this is his second stint with the Kings after the Blazers traded Anthony Tolliver for Trevor Ariza, Wenyon Gabriel and the late Caleb Swanigan in January 2020.
After leaving the Kings for the first time, Bazemore continued his recruiting tour with second stints with the Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Lakers.
Very few players have the chance to return to their former team. That team would grow a bit smaller for even two franchises, let alone three. And now, Bazemore has joined that very elite club.
Maybe down the line, he’ll make four comebacks and find a way back with the Blazers.
