The Sacramento Kings are beefing up their front office, and have extended an offer to Chris Mullin. According to the Sacramento Bee, Mullin has been offered a front office position as a consultant with the team:
The Kings have offered Hall of Fame player and former Golden State Warriors executive Chris Mullin a role as a consultant, The Bee learned.
The Kings recently hired Pete D’Alessandro as the team’s new general manager, after the Denver Nuggets allowed Sacramento to interview him. According to the Bee, D’Alessandro will be presented in a press conference that will take place on Monday.
Hall of Famer Mullin worked as a general manager for the Golden State Warriors and is an NBA analyst for ESPN.
Recent rumors have said that Monta Ellis will be opting out of his deal with the Milwaukee Bucks and will look to sign a long-term contract elsewhere. The Kings recently hired Mike Malone as the new head coach of the team, and it is reported that Ellis would be interested in working with Malone, as the two know each other well from their Golden State days. Mullin was also the one that drafted Ellis, and it is probable that he would be a favor of Sacramento signing the erratic scorer.
