Sydney born, Maric returns to Australia after spending his entire eight-season career playing in Europe.

"Australian fans have seen him play primarily for his country, but we are excited that a Sydney guy is coming back home after such a successful run in Europe," Kings managing director Jeff Van Groningen said.

Maric also brings with him the experience of winning a Euroleague, Eurocup Championship and a Greek Cup from his time in the northern hemisphere.

Of Serbian Heritage, Maric went undrafted in the NBA in 2008 before signing with Spanish club Granada and progressing into the European leagues.
