Alex Len Re-Signs With Kings

JULY 9: Len has officially re-signed with the Kings, according to’s transaction log.

JUNE 30: Kings center Alex Len will return to the team on a one-year contract, sources tell Shams Charania of The Athletic (Twitter link).

It will be the fourth straight season in Sacramento for the 31-year-old Len, who originally joined the team as a free agent in 2021 and then re-signed last summer. Len appeared in 48 games this season, all off the bench, and averaged 2.5 points, 2.7 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 9.3 minutes per night.

Len will be back on a veteran’s minimum deal for 2024/25, and although he’s projected to make a little more than $3.3MM, the new contract will only count as $2.1MM for Sacramento’s salary cap and tax purposes.

Len was considered to be a top prospect when he was selected by Phoenix with the fifth pick in the 2013 draft. He never got close to achieving stardom, but he has been able to carve out a long NBA career, mostly as a backup center. He also had brief stays in Atlanta, Toronto and Washington before coming to the Kings.

With Malik Monk agreeing to a new deal last week, Sacramento has taken care of both its unrestricted free agents before they could begin negotiating with other teams.
