Sacramento Kings Considering Bringing Back Chris Webber

According to Kings blog of the Sacramento Bee, the Sacramento Kings are considering bringing back former Kings player and superstar Chris Webber. No, not as a player, but as a member of the team’s front office.

The Kings are finally under new ownership and the majority owner Vivek Ranadive is exploring options for a new general manager. Larry Bird is among the names that have been mentioned, but the two parties have not yet met. Other than a new GM, the Kings will try to reshape the front office a little bit, which is where Webber comes in.

While Webber is a popular name in Sacramento, it is hard seeing him leaving his broadcasting career behind unless he is offered a great position.

Webber played 6.5 seasons with the Kings and was a 5-time All-Star.
