Prior to striking this deal with the Kings, Hill’s was in talks to join the Los Angeles Lakers on Monday. It was believed that if he would have signed there, it would be a one-year deal to mentor Lonzo Ball.

The 31-year-old Hill will now be playing for his fourth team; his third team in the Western Conference. He had a career-year with the Utah Jazz after being involving in a three-team deal with the Indiana Pacers and the Atlanta Hawks.

Hill averaged 16.9 points, 3.4 rebounds, 4.2 assists, 1.0 steals and 0.2 blocks in 49 games, all starts for the Jazz.

Randolph resurrected his career during his eight-year stay with the Memphis Grizzlies. He’ll be joining his fifth team in his career; his fourth team in the Western Conference.

Last season, he averaged 14.1 points, 8.2 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 0.5 steals and 0.1 blocks in 73 games, including five starts. However, in 551 games, including 446 starts with the Grizzlies, he averaged 16.8 points, 10.2 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 0.8 steals and 0.3 blocks.

Kings general manager Vlade Divać is hoping that these two players will add veteran leadership to his young roster.
