SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) -Mikki Moore signed with the Sacramento Kings on Friday night, leaving the New Jersey Nets to join his eighth NBA team.
The 7-foot Moore had a breakthrough campaign with the Nets last season, averaging career highs of 9.8 points and 5.1 rebounds while making nearly 61 percent of his shots. He started 55 games for New Jersey while filling in for injured Nenad Krstic.
Moore, who will begin his 10th NBA season in the fall, will compete for playing time with forwards Shareef Abdur-Rahim and Kenny Thomas, and fellow 7-footers Brad Miller and rookie Spencer Hawes. Sacramento also is known to be actively shopping most of its players in potential trades, and Moore's signing could be a prelude to a deal.
Moore also has played for Detroit, Boston, Atlanta, Utah, the Los Angeles Clippers and Seattle.
