According to The Vertical's Shams Charania, point guard George Hill has agreed to a three-year, $57 million deal with the Sacramento Kings.

Hill, 31, had a career-best season in Utah in 2016-17.

Hill, whom the Jazz acquired from the Indiana Pacers in a three-team trade following the 2015-16 season, was an unrestricted free agent. It's a surprise move, since Hill hadn't been connected to the Kings at all previously.

Hill is one of the most underrated players in the entire Association.

The combination of his scoring prowess and his stout perimeter defense helped transform the Jazz into a postseason team in the Western Conference, and he will look to replicate that formula moving forward for Sacramento.

Hill was ranked No. 13 on the list of top available free agents this offseason compiled by ESPN's Kevin Pelton.

ESPN first reported the agreement.

Randolph, 36, will join his fifth National Basketball Association team after spending the last eight seasons with the Grizzlies.

Those statistics were down from the 35-year-old Randolph's career averages (16.8 points, 9.3 rebounds).

Randolph played in 73 games for the Memphis Grizzlies last season, averaging 14.1 points and 8.2 rebounds in 24.5 minutes per game while shooting 44.9 percent from the floor and 73.1 percent from the free-throw line.
