Alex Len is returning for his fifth season in a Sacramento Kings uniform.

According to The Athletic’s Shams Charania, the veteran center intends to ink a one-year deal worth $3.3 million once the NBA free agency period begins at 3:00 PM PDT.

Len, 31, averaged 2.5 points, 2.7 rebounds, and 1.0 assists per game on 61 percent shooting from the field over 9.3 minutes per game (48 appearances) for Sacramento during the 2023-24 season.

The Kings were in need of a backup center as Domantas Sabonis is currently the only other big man on the roster.

With Len now back in the picture, Sacramento general manager Monte McNair will now turn his attention to making upgrades to a Kings roster that has remained largely intact since the beginning of the 2022-23 season.

Sacramento has two open roster spots remaining and is $13 million underneath the first salary tax apron.
