Former Golden State Warriors general manager and NBA Hall of Famer Chris Mullin is expected to join the Sacramento Kings front office, according the ESPN’s Marc Stein.
Sources say that Mullin has been recruited by the Kings to expand upon his previous senior advisory role in support of new general manager Pete D’Alessandro and majority owner Vivek Ranadive.
D’Alessandro got his first opportunity in an NBA front office with the Warriors, under Mulllin. It was Mullin who then recommended that Ranadive hire D’Alessandro as GM.
I scratch your back, you scratch mine? Whatever the case may be, this is a good thing for the Kings. Another voice, another opinion and another mind to try and turn things around in Sac-town won’t hurt.
After his playing days were over, Mullin was hired as a special assistant by the Warriors, and was named Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations for the team in 2004. Shortly after the 2009 season, the team announced that Mullin’s expiring contract would not be renewed.
Since then, he has worked as an analyst for ESPN.
