“Chris Mullin is an incredible addition to our organization,” Kings owner and Chairman Vivek Ranadivé said in a statement on Kings.com. “I have great respect for his accomplishments and understanding of the game.”
The hiring of Mullin was a mere formality at this point. While Mullin was never introduced as a official employee, he’s worked with the Kings since they hired General Manager Pete D’Alessandro in mid-June.
“It isn’t everyday that a franchise has the opportunity to add an individual of Chris’ caliber and reputation,” said D’Alessandro.
