The Kings have signed Chimezie Metu to a three-year contract.

In his third NBA season and first with the Kings, Metu has seen his minutes double to 10.1 per game. He's emerged as a staple of the second unit and the Kings are obviously sold on the 24-year-old's potential. "He provides toughness and energy," said GM Monte McNair. "We are happy to watch his career develop in a Kings uniform."
