Forward Carl Landry believes his second stint with the Sacramento Kings will be better -- and last longer -- than his first time around.
With an aggressive new regime in place, Landry and the Kings agreed to a four-year deal worth at least $26 million Saturday.
Landry, 29, averaged 10.8 points and six rebounds in 23.2 minutes off the bench to help the Warriors reach the second round of the playoffs last season. He opted out of the final year of his two-year, $8 million deal with Golden State last month to become a free agent.
Landry was one of two key reserves on last season's Warriors squad to find a new team Saturday. Point guard Jarrett Jack agreed to a four-year, $25 million contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers. The final year of Jack's deal is a team option.
Jack, 29, averaged 12.9 points and 5.6 assists last season. The Warriors renounced their rights on Jack, a restricted free agent, last week.
Landry's agent, Mark Bartelstein, said that final details of the contract were still being worked out and that it could reach $27 million over the life of the deal. He said Landry is excited to return to Sacramento under new owner Vivek Ranadive, who bought the franchise from the Maloof family in May.
"They've got a great new ownership group that's committed to building a winner, and Carl was thrilled to be a part of it," Bartelstein said.
Landry played parts of the 2009-10 and 2010-11 seasons with the Kings. He will be reunited with coach Mike Malone, who was an assistant with the Warriors the past two seasons.
Pistons: Forward Josh Smith and Detroit have agreed to a $54 million, four-year contract, according to a person familiar with the deal. NBA rules prevent confirmation of moves until Wednesday, when Smith is expected to sign his deal.
Smith has played for only his hometown Atlanta Hawks, who drafted him No. 17 overall out of high school in 2004.
Clippers: Free-agent point guard Darren Collison has agreed to a two-year deal with Los Angeles, the Orange County Register reported. Collison reportedly has a player option for the second season.
Trail Blazers: Portland agreed to a contract with free agent forward Dorell Wright, who played last season with the Philadelphia 76ers, a person close to the negotiations said.
