From Malik Monk’s IG: There’s no question Fox and Monk will be highly motivated to make this pairing work as it did at Kentucky in 2016-17. PM

Kyle Goon @kylegoon
The reported Lonnie Walker and Troy Brown signings are moves in the Malik Monk mold from last year: find former first-round picks who are looking to build back their value. Both are under 24 in the backcourt/wings where the Lakers need depth. – 7:08 PM
Matt George @MattGeorgeSAC
Malik Monk on IG, excited to reunite with Swipa. PM

With Mo Bamba and Malik Monk off the board, my preferred Lakers MLE target becomes Otto Porter. – 6:14 PM
Dan Favale @danfavale
my favorite signings so far (that were definitely negotiated between 6 pm est and 601 pm est and not a moment sooner)
—isaiah hartenstein to the knicks
—malik monk to the kings
—tyus jones stays with the grizzlies – 6:12 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Malik Monk got most of the Non-Taxpayer MLE from the Kings.
Sacramento likely left enough to sign a player to a four-year minimum deal vs the two years allowed via the Minimum Exception. – 6:08 PM
Bill Simmons @BillSimmons
Monk to the Kings! I can root for Monk again! Party at my house on Monk Island!!!! – 6:08 PM

Brad Turner @BA_Turner
Can confirm reports that guard Malik Monk has agreed to a deal to join the Sacramento Kings, two years for about $20 million. Monk had a break-out season with the Lakers, who knew they probably wouldn’t be able to afford him in free agency. – 6:05 PM
James Ham @James_HamNBA

Jason Anderson @JandersonSacBee
I’m getting strong indications from league sources that Malik Monk will reach an agreement with the Sacramento Kings after free agency begins at 6 p.m. ET. Sounds like a Kentucky reunion with De’Aaron Fox could be in the works.…4:40 PM
Dave Mason @DeuceMason
KD WANTS OUT?! Monk to the Kings?!
We’re going LIVE! PM

James Ham @James_HamNBA
As @Jake Fischer reported on @Marc Stein pod, there is a lot of smoke with regards to Malik Monk landing with Kings. Nothing confirmed yet on length of contract/money, but multiple league sources are linking Lakers guard to Sacramento hours before start of free agency. – 4:18 PM
Mark Deeks @MarkDeeksNBA
Lakers to sign Kemba Walker and Blake Griffin, re-sign Malik Monk (MLE) and Carmelo (minimum), and run it back. Not news, just a palpable whiff of emotional panic I just had. – 1:57 PM
Christos Tsaltas @Tsaltas46
Malik Monk could be a great fit for the Sacramento Kings. He knows De’Aaron Fox’s game pretty well, since Kentucky days and he’s a prolific scorer. Definetely can make the difference in Sactown. #SacramentoProud1:26 PM
