The Sacramento Kings were hoping to retain Sixth Man of the Year candidate Malik Monka, Their wish became a reality on Thursday as the two sides agreed ona four-year $78 million contract, Adrian Wojnarowski reports.

The scoring guard will return to Sacramento and he will sign his new deal once the league’s moratorium ends on July 6.

Under terms of the new collective bargaining agreement, teams could start speaking to their own free agents one day after the conclusion of the NBA Finals. That’s the reason players like Pascal Siakam and Malik Monk have already deals in place.

Monk was one of the top performers in an underwhelming season for Sacramento. While, the former Hornet had a career year with personal bests in points and assists per game, the Kings struggled to finish the season inside the top-6 of the West and were relegated to the play-in.

They were able to win the first game against the Warriors, but their season was ended by the New Orleans Pelicans. Monk was unable to help the squad in the last nine games due to an MCL injury.
