Here’s the Sacramento Bee reporting on the Kings and their search for a new general manager:
The search for a new general manager is underway in Sacramento. The Kings have talked for years about changing the culture within the organization. Now they have to find the right person for the job.
That would have been incredibly difficult, given the abbreviated offseason schedule with the NBA Draft set for Oct. 16 and the start of free agency set to begin Oct. 18, but it appears the Kings will catch a big break. All signs point to those dates being pushed back several weeks along with the start of the 2020-21 season, which was scheduled to begin Dec. 1.
Moving back the start of free agency will also move back the Oct. 17 guarantee date on Kings forward Nemanja Bjelica’s $7.2 million contract for next season. These delays would give the Kings time to wait for candidates whose teams are in the playoffs and increase the likelihood they will make a hire before they have to start making important roster decisions.
