The free agent exodus from Sacramento continues as The Athletic's Shams Charania is reporting that Alex Len is signing with the Toronto Raptors.

Len joined the Kings last season as part of the trade that sent Dewayne Dedmon and a pair of second rounders to Atlanta. That trade also brought Jabari Parker to the Kings.
It's hard to call Len a significant loss for the Kings considering he only appeared in 15 games for Sacramento. In those 15 games he averaged 5.9 points, 6.1 rebounds, and 1 block per game. He also provided size that was otherwise missing on the roster, as Len stands a legit 7 feet tall and played a tough style of basketball.
The Kings still have Richaun Holmes to start at center. Beyond that there's a notable lack of depth at center unless the Kings view Marvin Bagley as a center,as many have argued would be a better fit for his skills than playing power forward.
Free agency certainly isn't over, and there will always be centers available, but the remaining options are beginning to be the bottom of the barrel.
For the Raptors, the signing provides nice depth behind Aron Baynes. The Raptors lost both Serge Ibaka and Marc Gasol this offseason.
