The Sacramento Kings are looking to increase their size on the bench as the team announced they’ll be recalling center Georgios Papagiannis from the Reno Bighorns of the NBA G League.

Jason Jones of the Sac Bee tweeted out the news Monday morning.

Papagiannis was selected 13th overall in the 2016 NBA Draft by the Phoenix Suns. However, his rights were later traded to the Kings.

During his rookie season, he had multiple assignments with the Bighorns.

He averaged 5.6 points and 2.8 total rebounds in 22 appearances during his 2016-17 season with the Kings.
