The Kings have offered Hall of Fame player and former Golden State Warriors executive Chris Mullin a role as a consultant, The Bee learned.
Sources spoke on the condition of anonymity due to the private nature of the offer.
Mullin was the top basketball executive for the Warriors from 2004-09. New Kings general manager Pete D’Alessandro worked for the Warriors from 2004-08, the final two years as assistant general manager.
The Kings will introduce D’Alessandro at a press conference Monday afternoon at Sleep Train Arena.
If the Kings do bring in Mullin, it would fuel speculation about the Kings’ future pursuit of free agent guard Monta Ellis.
Mullin drafted Ellis in 2005 when D’Alessandro.
Ellis reportedly turned down a contract extension from the Milwaukee Bucks and would be interested in playing for the Kings and new coach Michael Malone.
