Malik Monk had a solid year with the Los Angeles Lakers, and he was an amazing sixth man for the team that was able to create his own shot off the bench. It is clear that he is a player that can be great as a starting shooting guard, and it is quite possible that he gets that starting role on his new franchise.
Shams Charania has recently revealed that Malik Monk has signed a two-year, $19 million deal with the Sacramento Kings. This is definitely a good acquisition for the Kings, who have been in win-now mode ever since trading for big man Domantas Sabonis.
The Sacramento Kings have the league's longest playoff drought, and it is clear that at this point, the team is simply trying to win. Malik Monk will be a good fit next to franchise stars De'Aaron Fox and Domantas Sabonis, and perhaps we will see the Sacramento Kings make the playoffs next year, though that would most likely come from them being in the play-in tournament.
Malik Monk was one of the more underrated players in the league this year. Hopefully, he gets the chance to shine on the Sacramento Kings, and the contract they got him on is definitely team-friendly, which will give them more flexibility to improve.
