Mullin has served as a senior adviser over the summer for new General Manager Pete D’Alessandro, but Stein reports he will take on a more prominent role within the organization. D’Alessandro once served under Mullin back when Mullin was General Manager of the Golden State Warriors.
While Mullin was never introduced as a official employee, the move is not a surprising one. Mullin was consulted by Kings majority owner Vivek Ranadive back when the team were looking to hire a new GM and apparently recommended D’Alessandro for the position. He worked with the Sacramento staff during the draft and over the summer league.
