The fourth day of NBA free agency had a lot more action taking place then a passive day three did. It has seen marquee free agent Gordon Hayward finally announce what team he will be playing for and the Sacramento Kings nab two veterans. There was also an important three-team trade centered around small forward Danilo Gallinari.

Kings get Hill and Randolph

The Sacramento Kings added veterans George Hill and Zach Randolph.

Hill's deal is for three-years, $57 million, and Randolph's is for two-years, $24 million. Last season, Hill was plagued by injuries, but when he did play he had one of his best seasons as the Utah Jazz's starting point guard. The 31-year-old put up 16.9 points, 4.2 assists, 3.4 rebounds, and 1 steal. He also shot 47.7% from the field and 40.3% on three-pointers.

Randolph, who turns 36 on July 16th, has been the heart and soul of the Memphis Grizzlies for the last eight seasons.

He helped lead the team to seven straight playoff appearances while making two All-Star appearances. Last year, Randolph transitioned to a sixth-man role and was one of the best in the league. He averaged 14.1 points, 8.2 rebounds, 1.7 assists in 24.5 minutes played.

Patrick Patterson fills OKC's gap at power forward

The Oklahoma City Thunder and Patrick Patterson have agreed to a three-year, $16.4 million deal, filling the gap at the position after the team lost Taj Gibson to Minnesota.

His deal includes a player option for the third season. Last season for the Raptors, Patterson averaged 6.8 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 1.2 assists. He also shot 40.1% from the field and 37.2% on three-pointers.

Omir Casspi signs with the Warriors

The Golden State Warriors have signed small forward Omir Casspi to a one-year deal at the veteran's minimum of $2.1 million. Last season, Casspi bounced around the league, playing in 36 games for the Kings, Timberwolves, and Pelicans.

Over his eight-year NBA career, he averages 8.2 points, 4.1 rebounds, and 1.2 assists. He also shoots 44.3% from the field and 36.7% on three-pointers.

A major three-team sign and trade

The Los Angeles Clippers have acquired Denver Nuggets small forward Danilo Gallinari has part of a three-team sign and trade also involving the Atlanta Hawks. The Clippers acquired Gallinari on a three-year, $65 million deal.

In return, the Nuggets received Washington's 2019 second-round pick from the Hawks. Gallinari was going to join the Clippers as a free agent, so the Nuggets wanted to at least get something instead of nothing.

For helping make the deal happen, the Hawks received Jamal Crawford, Diamond Stone, Houston's 2018 first-round pick and cash from the Clippers. Crawford will now ask Atlanta for a contract buyout so he can become a free agent. Sources have told Marc Spears of The Undefeated that Crawford wants to play for the Lakers. The Warriors are also interested in his services.
