The Kings officially announced today that Chris Mullin has joined the organization as the Advisor to the Chairman.
According to a team statement, Mullin will serve in a range of roles within basketball operations.
Mullin, 50, will assume a variety of basketball operations responsibilities, advising Ranadivé and General Manager Pete D'Alessandro regarding player transactions and apprising front office and coaching personnel of the team's collegiate and professional scouting efforts.
"Chris Mullin is an incredible addition to our organization," said Kings owner Vivek Ranadive in the team's statement. "I have great respect for his accomplishments and understanding of the game. From day one, we have focused on making the Sacramento Kings a first-class franchise built for the 21st Century. Chris brings the experience, knowledge, and influence to help us achieve our ultimate goal—bringing a championship to the fans and city of Sacramento. As we prepare for the new season and a new era in Kings basketball, I'm really excited about the group of visionary leaders we've brought together."
Mullin had served as an unofficial advisor to Ranadive and D'Alessandro in recent months. ESPN's Marc Stein reported Wednesday that the Kings were going to give Mullin a more official role, setting the stage for the Kings to make it official today.
"I couldn’t be more excited about joining the Kings and playing a part in making this team a winner again," said Mullin in the team's statement. "I’m especially grateful for the unique opportunity to work in close proximity with a world-class ownership group led by Vivek Ranadivé and the talented group of individuals assembled in our front office."
Mullins' front office experience includes serving as a special assistant and then executive vice president for five seasons with the Golden State Warriors.
