The Kings were rumored to be courting Ryan Hollins this offseason, but the veteran center has elected to take his talents elsewhere.
Despite being linked to the Clippers, Wizards and Kings in recent weeks, Hollins will be suiting up for the Grizzlies in the 2015-16 season, according to Marc J. Spears of Yahoo Sports. The deal is non-guaranteed, as Memphis already has 15 players under contract heading into the season, reports The Commercial Appeal.
Hollins played in 46 games for Sacramento last season, including nine starts. The journeyman seven-footer averaged 3.0 points and 2.2 rebounds in 9.6 minutes per game.
The Kings retooled their frontcourt this offseason, taking center Willie Cauley-Stein in the 2015 NBA Draft and signing free agents Kosta Koufos (center), Quincy Acy (power forward) and Caron Butler (small forward).
Big man Eric Moreland, who reportedly agreed to a contract with Sacramento earlier this month, could also see an increase in playing time.
