Vlade Divac Spoke With Kings About Joining Front Office

Former Kings center Vlade Divac could be making his return to Sac-Town in the near future. In an interview with NBA.com, Divac expressed his desire to join an NBA front office after his commitment to the Serbian Olympic Committee ends this year. Divac said that he’s had preliminary discussions with the Kings about joining the franchise’s basketball operations. From NBA.com (via Cowbell Kingdom):

NBA.com: What would you like to do when you come back to the US?


Divac: I would definitely find some involvement in the NBA with some team. Right after my retirement, I was doing some scouting for the Lakers. I tried to see how management works. I went to Real Madrid, worked for them for a year. That helped me to kind of develop some interest in management. So now my second term on the Olympic committee of Serbia — and I’m so proud of that, we did a great job — so something in management.


NBA.com: Have you had any conversations with anybody?


Divac: With the Kings, yeah. We’ll see.


NBA.com: What do you think you would do with them?


Divac: My ultimate goal is one day — it doesn’t have to be tomorrow or two days, three days — I want to be a GM. Go level by level.
