New general manager Pete D'Alessandro said Saturday that while he doesn't yet know what position Abdur-Rahim will fill, he does plan to keep him. He indicated he would have looked at hiring 'Reef had Pete D. gotten the Nuggets GM job. The Bee also reports that former player George McCloud will be a scout for the Kings.
Abdur-Rahim played a couple of seasons for the Kings before taking a medical retirement and joining the coaching staff. He and Bobby Jackson eventually switched places, with Jackson becoming an assistant coach and 'Reef joining the front office. Jackson will also remain with the team, though not as a coach.
