Kings want to interview Pete D'Alessandro, who might be getting the Nuggets job

The Nuggets' assistant GM is one of the Kings' targets.

Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee reported on Thursday that the Kings have requested permission to interview Nuggets assistant GM Pete D'Alessandro. Whether that actually happens remains to be seen as Denver watched its Executive of the Year winner Masai Ujiri waltz back to Toronto when the Nuggets wouldn't match a (totally reasonable) offer. Denver may want to keep D'Alessandro for itself.

If it's up to Pete D., Sacramento may represent a better chance to get paid now and in the future. It's pretty well established that the Kroenkes are not willing to pay top dollar to keep even highly successful GMs; one would assume that Vivek Ranadivé may be willing to open up his wallet to reward and keep a highly successful exec. Of course, that all assumes D'Alessandro would interview well and land the gig.

Like a couple other rumored Kings GM candidates, D'Alessandro has a history with the Warriors: he was a Chris Mullin deputy before the Golden State front office was rebuilt after the ownership change. He's basically old Travis Schlenk. D'Alessandro also has a background in law and was once a player agent.
