Haliburton will join a roster with Iowa native Harrison Barnes and former Oklahoma guard Buddy Hield. The Kings went 31-41 last season and are in the same division as the Lakers and Warriors.
This will be an opportunity for Tyrese to gain playing time right away with a bunch of young pieces around him.
