Here is another tie between Golden State and the new ownership of the Sacramento Kings.

Sacramento’s new owner Vivek Ranadive and been a minority owner with the Warriors, and with him he brought over coach Mike Malone. Now they are close to bringing in a former Warriors’ GM.

Hall of Famer Chris Mullin will join the Kings, reports Marc Stein at ESPN.

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 start in an NBA front office with the Warriors under Mullin, and it was Mullin who recommended that Ranadive hire D’Alessandro as GM.

This should work out well as the two have a relationship in the past. Plus, another voice, another set of eyes in a front office can be a good thing.

Mullin is a Dream Team and Hall of Fame player who also has worked in NBA front offices. He was the Warriors guy under the former owner Chris Cohen until he lost a power struggle with Don Nelson. Since then he has worked for ESPN as an analyst.

    “Sacramento’s new owner Vivek Ranadive and been a minority owner with the Warriors, and with him he brought over coach MIKE MONROE”

    Seriously? I think you are referring to MIKE MALONE, current head coach of the Kings. You get paid to write blurbs about NBA news and you can’t proofread a single paragraph? A high schooler tasked with writing that much information would catch that. Step your game up. The internet is not an excuse for lazy “journalism”.

      Also, “and been”? This really is an embarrassment on all fronts.

    Good… get him off ESPN. He is terrible.

    Well, it’s better than working for ESPN.

    He may not be qualified to work in a front office like others, but he’ll be at someplace better.

    Mike Monroe rules! Yeah! So does does his brother Earl. And his wife, Marilyn. I think their son Greg plays for the Pistons?

    Awesome! I mean, who wouldn’t want the man who signed Mike Dunleavy Jr, Troy Murphy, Jason Richardson, & Adonal Foyle to 214 Million worth of extensions in a 2 year span (44/5, 58/6, 70/6, 42/6 respectively)?

    As Elgin Baylor & others have proven: being a great player does not translate to being a good GM.
