The Kings have offered Naismith Memorial Hall of Fame player and former Golden State Warriors executive Chris Mullin a role as a consultant, The Bee learned Sunday.
Sources said Mullin likely will accept. They spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the private nature of the offer.
There are all sorts of connections here, and the Warriors are again in the middle of the Kings’ hirings.
Vivek Ranadive, a former minority owner for the Warriors, hired Mike Malone in early June. Malone was a former assistant for the Warriors. Current Warriors assistant Bob Beyer could join Malone in Sacramento at some point, but those rumors have ceased since the report was released over two weeks ago.
Moreover, Pete D’Alessandro, who was recently hired to be the Kings’ general manager, worked for the Warriors from 2004-2008. In the final two years, he served as Golden State’s assistant GM.
In short, Ranadive continues to use his connections within the Warriors’ organization to patch up the Kings’ front office and coaching vacancies.
