The Sacramento Kings have reached an agreement in principle to make Denver VP Pete D’Alessandro its general manager, league sources tell Y!
Contractual details have yet to be announced. It’s also not known if the Kings will continue on and bring in a rumored “advisor” as was hinted by a few sources during the past few days or if D’Alessandro will take full control.
D’Alessandro has spent time with both the Golden State Warriors and the aforementioned Nuggets franchises, joining the Warriors in 2004 and the Nuggets in 2010. His resume covers just about every inch of an NBA front office, from originally being hired as a scout to salary cap analysis.
Per a Denver Nuggets media release:
D’Alessandro joined the Warriors in April of 2004 and has served the last three seasons as the team’s Director of Basketball Operations, assisting Mullin in the development of overall strategy and management of day-to-day basketball operations. In his new position, his duties will include assisting Mullin with trade/free agent discussions and negotiations, while continuing to focus on player contracts, salary cap analysis and Collective Bargaining Agreement rules and regulations. Prior to joining the Warriors, D’Alessandro spent the previous seven years managing the business and contractual affairs of individual NBA players.
