Luc Mbah a Moute joked on Monday he hoped his second stint with the Kings lasted more than a “couple weeks,” but did not have this in mind.

The Kings announced Thursday that the one-year contract Mbah a Moute signed Tuesday had been voided because he failed a team-issued physical.

Mbah a Moute had been signed to add a defensive presence on the perimeter for the Kings.

Mbah a Moute’s first stint with the Kings was also brief. He was acquired in a trade before the 2013-14 season but was traded to Minnesota for Derrick Williams after playing in nine games. Mbah a Moute played for Philadelphia last season, where he averaged a career-high 9.9 points.
