A person with direct knowledge of the deal says the Sacramento Kings and point guard Rajon Rondo have agreed to a one-year deal for $10 million.

Rondo's addition comes hours after the Kings and shooting guard Marco Belinelli agreed to a $19 million, three-year contract Friday, another person familiar with that deal said. The people spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because contracts can't be completed until the moratorium on free agency ends Thursday.

Rondo is trying to recover from a brief but tumultuous tenure in Dallas. He was benched several times by Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle after coming over in a December trade from Boston, where he helped the Celtics win the 2008 title and return to the NBA Finals in 2010.

Belinelli has played the past two seasons with San Antonio, helping the Spurs win the NBA championship in 2014.
