Francisco Garcia Inks Deal Worth up to $30 Million


Dominican guard Francisco Garcia has signed a five-year contract extension with the Sacramento Kings.

The deal was first reported by Thursday’s edition of newspaper El Caribe of Dominican Republic.

The deal is worth $23 million over four years with a fifth-year player’s option worth $7 million, a source close to the negotiations confirmed for ESPNdeportes.com.

"I still have a lot of things to prove this year, I have to raise my level of play," Garcia told ESPNdeportes.com. "It will be different, we don’t have Ron Artest anymore, and I am prepared because the team expects a lot from me."
