Willie Reed has reached agreement with the Sacramento Kings on a contract for the remainder of the season, his agent Joel Bell told RealGM.
The deal contains a team option for next season.
Reed, a 6-foot-10 forward with the Springfield Armor of the NBA D-League, has averaged 14.8 points, 10.1 rebounds, 1.6 blocks and 59 percent shooting this season. He went to training camp with the Kings in 2012, and the team remains enamored with his activity and athleticism.
Reed finished last season with the Memphis Grizzlies and participated with their summer league team, but he was released prior to 2013-14.
Reed, 23, played two seasons at Saint Louis University, where he averaged 12.4 points and 7.9 rebounds as a sophomore.
BEST OF MAXIM
The Memphis Grizzlies continued their impressive streak on Wednesday night by beating the Utah Jazz, bringing the team to a record of 14-5 since the All-Star break. If the Grizzlies can keep this level of play up, they are very likely not only to make the playoffs, but to reach 50 wins as well, which would help legitimize the possibility of the team making a strong run for the NBA...
The Kings signed Royce White to consecutive 10-day contracts, but allowed the most recent one to expire without inking the troubled player for the remainder of the season.
Sacramento hardly gave White a decent look, at least at the NBA level. The first 10 days or so he spent in the D-League, and when he was actually with the Kings, he managed to log just nine total minutes over...
The Sacramento Kings defeated the Milwaukee Bucks on Sunday by the score of 124-107. The win improved the Kings to 25-45, fourth in the Pacific Division. Point guard Isaiah Thomas, who has been playing with sprained ligaments in his wrist, also had a quad contusion, but played 37 minutes and scored 30 points. He is questionable for tonight's game against the New York Knicks...
From the moment the Kings’ Draft Day pursuit of Ben McLemore ended with him slipping to the seventh spot in 2013, the team has tried to create an atmosphere to foster success.
Early in the season, that meant bringing McLemore off the bench so he wouldn’t have to deal with playing against other starters as much and the figurative lumps he would take.
It also meant leaving McLemore...
Hot potato was a fun game back when we were kids, right? Heck, I'll say it--the game is still fun know when I play it with my toddlers (and my friends when we are drunk). It appears that the Sacramento Kings like to play Hot Potato too. Maybe next time they'll wait till a time out or after the game before they play it.@SBNationGIF/Twitter Loading...

Against the New York Knicks, Kings’ point guard Ray McCallum started a game for the very first time in his career (replaced Isaiah Thomas – quad injury).
Ray McCallum didn’t start well missing his first nine shots, however managed to get a little bit of rhythm in the fourth. In the same quarter, while guarding Raymond Felton, the rookie...
Has anyone outside of Tennessee noticed that the Memphis Grizzlies are 28-9 (.757) since starting the season 15-19? If you stretch that out over 82 games, the Grizzlies would finish 62-20, good enough to have the best record in the league in an average NBA season.
Since the return of Marc Gasol during that stretch, Memphis has the top-rated defense in the league.
How many top Western...
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) Sacramento Kings coach Michael Malone says he still has a friendly relationship with Golden State's Mark Jackson, denying a report that the two went weeks without talking while he was the lead assistant with the Warriors the previous two seasons.
Sacramento point guard Isaiah Thomas has been ruled out for the Kings' game at Oklahoma City due to a right quad contusion.
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) Zach Randolph had 22 points and 13 rebounds, and his two free throws with 11 seconds clinched the Memphis Grizzlies' 91-87 come-from-behind win over the Utah Jazz on Wednesday night.
With only a few games separating fifth and ninth place in the Western Conference, the Memphis Grizzlies are trying to make sure they're not the team left out of the playoffs.
The Grizzlies began a five-game road trip a bit wobbly.
But they found their bearings late and earned a 91-87 comeback victory over the Utah Jazz Wednesday night in EnergySolutions Arena.
The Western Conference worst Jazz were in control most of the night and looked as if they would upset a quality opponent at home for the first time since beating the Miami Heat on Feb. 8.

The Memphis Grizzlies clamped down with a styfling fourth quarter defense and a crisp offense that silenced a jam-packed Utah Jazz home crowd.
If you were among many NBA observers who a couple of months back thought it was safe to count the Grizzlies out, you don’t know grit-and-grind.
The Griz used a 12-0 run, several defensive stops down the stretch...
