Kings Sign Ostertag

0 replies 1 views Edited Jul 20, 2004

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) -- Center Greg Ostertag signed with the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday, leaving the Utah Jazz after nine seasons. ,

The terms of Ostertag's deal weren't immediately available. He signed with Sacramento on the same day center Vlade Divac left the Kings to rejoin the Los Angeles Lakers. ,

Ostertag averaged 5.1 points, 5.9 rebounds and 1.85 blocks during his career with the Jazz, who made him a first-round draft pick in 1995. He played in two NBA Finals with Utah in 1997 and 1998. ,

With Mehmet Okur and Carlos Boozer expected to join the Jazz after signing offer sheets earlier this month, Utah had a glut of big men. Jarron Collins and Curtis Borchardt still are under contract, and the Jazz made little effort to re-sign Ostertag. ,

In Sacramento, Ostertag will back up All-Star center Brad Miller,
