Belinelli has agreed to a three-year contract with the Kings worth $19 million, ESPN Los Angeles' Ramona Shelburne reports.

This could end up bolstering Belinelli's fantasy value, at least for the 2015-16 season, as he should have a bigger role in Sacramento than he had in two years with San Antonio. The 29-year-old Italian is a career 39.2 percent three-point shooter and should push Ben McLemore for minutes at the two. When the Kings use a small lineup with Rudy Gay at the four Belinelli can also slide over to play small forward.

Belinelli averaged 9.2 points, 1.4 three-pointers, 2.5 rebounds, 1.5 assists, and 0.5 steals in 22 minutes per game through 62 games in 2014-15.

Belinelli, who battled a groin injury most of the season, will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason. The 29-year-old finished his eighth NBA season shooting 42 percent from the field, 37 percent from three-point range, and 85 percent from the free-throw line, filling his role as a shooting specialist for the Spurs. Though Belinelli fits coach Gregg Popovich's system as an efficient-shooting foreign talent with experience, he has never stayed on the same NBA team for more than two seasons. With Danny Green also entering unrestricted free agency this offseason, the starting shooting guard spot for the Spurs could be open to Belinelli if he re-signs with the team, though it's unclear where he will be playing next season.

Belinelli logged 16 minutes of work off the bench in Game 3 against the Clippers on Friday. He managed to put up nine points, one rebound, and one assist during that time span.

Belinelli is firmly within coach Gregg Popovich's rotation but is only averaging 18 minutes on the court over the first three games of the playoffs. As a result, the 29-year-old hardly touches the ball enough to amount significant production.

Belinelli scored 12 points (4-12 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 1-2 FT) with four rebounds, three assists and a steal in 30 minutes off the bench Wednesday.

He got some extra run in a blowout win over the Magic. Belinelli is averaging a useful 1.6 threes over his last 11 games, but his 8.7 points and 3.4 boards over that stretch make him a fantasy afterthought in all but the deepest leagues.

Belinelli scored 12 points (5-8 FG, 2-4 3Pt) with three assists and two rebounds in 17 minutes off the bench Sunday.

He was the only Spur to shoot better than 50% from the floor on the night, as the Raptors held San Antonio to a season-low 33% field goal shooting. Despite limited minutes, Belinelli now has five three-pointers in three games since returning from his groin injury, and if you need help from the outside in a deep league, he's worth keeping an eye on in case his court time increases.

Belinelli finished with 11 points (4-6 FG, 3-4 3Pt), one rebounds and one assist in 17 minutes.

He had missed the previous 11 games with a groin injury. He played 28 minutes per game in December, and the Spurs are likely going to ease him back into the rotation. The Spurs next game is Friday against the Heat, we'll see if his minutes increase against Miami.
