Kings will interview Scott Layden for general manager spot, according to report

USA TODAY Sports

Add another name to the list.

Scott Layden, a former executive with the Jazz and Knicks and a current Spurs assistant GM, will interview for the Kings' open general manager position, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

Layden is one of the more experienced NBA execs trying out for the gig. He is credited with the Jazz landing John Stockton and Karl Malone in the middle of the first round in back-to-back drafts in the 1980s. He is also credited with accelerating the destruction of the great '90s Knicks teams upon taking over that front office in 1999. (Isiah Thomas finished the job for Layden.)

Layden is the son of Frank Layden, who coached the Utah Jazz in the '80s and later led that team's front office.

The Kings have reportedly now interviewed or will interview six candidates: Layden, Pete D'Alessandro, Chris Wallace, Mike Dunleavy, Travis Schlenk and David Morway. The Kings have also talked to Larry Bird (who has dropped out) and Kenny Smith. (It's unclear if the Smith chat was in the form of an interview.)
