Finney-Smith is averaging 8.9 points, 4.8 rebounds, 1.4 assists, 0.7 steals and 0.6 blocks this season while shooting 40.4% from the field, 37.8% from beyond the arc and 81.3% from the free-throw line. He’s making $13.4 million.

“Finney-Smith has hit over 39.0 percent of his triples in three of the last four years, and he’s not so far removed from being the designated stopper on a Dallas Mavericks squad that reached the Western Conference Finals,” Hughes wrote. “He may not seem like a high-end acquisition, but he addresses the Kings’ needs and has deep postseason experience.”

The Kings are looking to upgrade at the forward spot. They are 27-18 on the season, good for fifth place in the Western Conference standings.
