A person with knowledge of the deal says the Sacramento Kings and guard Marco Belinelli have agreed to a $19 million, three-year contract.

The person spoke to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity Friday because contracts can’t be completed until next week. ESPN first reported the agreement.

Belinelli gives the Kings the shooting guard they’ve been searching for to pair with All-Star center DeMarcus Cousins. Sacramento was turned down Thursday by Wesley Matthews, who accepted a deal with Dallas.

Belinelli has played the past two seasons with San Antonio, helping the Spurs win the NBA championship in 2014. He is shooting 43 percent in his eight-year career, including 39.2 percent from 3-point range.

The Kings were also meeting with free agent point guard Rajon Rondo on Friday.
