According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, the Sacramento Kings have reached an agreement with Denver Nuggets Vice President Pete D’Alessandro to become their new general manager.
Details of the agreement have yet to be disclosed.
Denver eventually granted Sacramento to talk to D’Alessandro concerning their general manager vacancy after days of pondering whether or not to. Current Toronto Raptors’ general manager Masai Ujiri had just bolted from Denver to take the Toronto job, and D’Alessandro was thought to be a candidate for the Nuggets’ position.
It was previously reported that if D’Alessandro were hired, assistant general manager of the Brooklyn Nets, Bobby Marks would possibly join the Kings as well. That still remains a possibility.
Shortly after Vivek Renadive purchased the Kings from the Maloof family, the team had decided not to renew the contract of veteran general manager Geoff Petrie.
Sacramento has not been in contention in nearly a decade, and it is clear that Renadive’s plans are to re-establish the Kings as one of the NBA’s powerhouses.
Change has been the word surrounding the Sacramento Kings as of late. Now with a new owner, new head coach, and new general manager, the regime has changed. Everyone involved with the Kings organization hopes that there is one more change to take place, their record.
Sacramento fans are some of the best in the NBA. It is clear that the new look Kings’ brass realizes that, appreciates that, and plans to reward them with a better product.
