Petrie Staying Put…For Now

One would have to assume that with all the current (and potential) vacancies among NBA general manager positions, one of the guys at the top of the replacement list would be Geoff Petrie. Of course, he’s under contract and the Kings would have to give permission for a team to speak with him, but still – you’d think teams would be chomping at the bit. According to the Maloof brothers though, nobody has come knocking yet:

“I haven’t heard from anyone and I don’t think Gavin (his brother) has either,” Joe Maloof said. “He would have told me if he had.”
Said Petrie, “With all due respect to the question and the questioner, the job I’m interested in talking about is the one I’m doing.”
Let me say that I’m far from a Petrie apologist – but I’m really glad he’s on our side. We’re a better organization because of him and seeing what other GM’s in the league are doing to their respective franchises *cough* David Kahn *cough*, it really makes you appreciate what you have here in Sacramento.
