The Kings must have liked what they saw out of undrafted rookie Isaiah Pineiro during the Las Vegas Summer League.
NBC Sports Bay Area's James Ham has confirmed that Pineiro and the Kings have agreed to a one-year, partially guaranteed contract.
The Athletic's Michael Scotto was first to report news of the agreement.

Pinerio averaged 4.6 points per game during Summer League action.
Pineiro, who graduated from the University of San Diego last spring, grew up in the Kings' backyard. The 24-year-old hails from Auburn, Calif. and grew up routing for the Kings.
"It's a little surreal. You grow up with a really close hometown team and you see them playing all the time," Pineiro told Kings.com. "So, to put on that jersey – it's a good feeling."

If Pineiro sticks with the Kings, he'll likely spend most of the 2019-20 season working on his game with the G League Stockton Kings.
