Sydney Kings have moved to strengthen their NBL squad with the acquisition of Melbourne United point guard Casper Ware on a multi-year deal.

The 28-year-old American played a leading role in United's 2017/18 NBL crown, backing that up with his third straight selection in the All-NBL First Team behind an average 18.8 points and 4.4 assists last season.

Ware's arrival will bolster an already strong Kings roster, including the returning league MVP Andrew Bogut.

"I'm really happy to be joining the Kings," Ware said.

"It was a big decision I had to make, but this is a new challenge for me and I'm excited to get stuck into it.

"I'll always respect the time I had in Melbourne because of winning a Championship there, but with Will and Andrew and the roster they are putting together at Sydney, I'm excited about what's ahead."
