Carl Landry has reached agreement on a four-year deal with the Sacramento Kings, his agent, Mark Bartelstein, said.

Landry will make $26 million over the course of the contract, a league source told Yahoo! Sports.

Landry opted out of the final year of his deal in Golden State and ultimately passed on a less lucrative offer to join the contending Los Angeles Clippers.

Landry, 29, averaged nearly 11 points and six rebounds in 23 minutes a game for the Warriors last season.

In seven NBA seasons with Houston, Sacramento, New Orleans and Golden State, Landry has averaged 11.9 points and 5.3 rebounds a game. He had two productive seasons for the Kings from 2009-11, averaging 18 points and 6.5 rebounds in 2009-10.
