Vlade Divac determined to rebuild Sacramento Kings


Former NBA player and current general manager and vice president of basketball operations of the Sacramento Kings, Vlade Divac, has signed a new multi-year contract with the team.

Divac, who played for the team in his time, joined the team’s front office in 2015, and was officially named to his current position in August.

Divac said he looks forward to building a winning team in Sacramento, which have gone their 10th straight season without any playoffs.

The team moves into a new downtown arena next season, without their coach George Karl, who got recently fired by Divac.

Divac played 16 seasons in the NBA for LA Lakers, Charlotte Hornets, and Sacramento Kings. He averaged career high 16 ppg backed up by 10.4 rpg and 2.2 bpg for the Lakers during the 1994-95 season.

He has made a name for himself in the NBA as a sharpshooting center, both capable of blocking shots in the paint, and knocking down an outside jumper. Divac made it to the NBA All-Star team during the 2000-2001 NBA season.

He appeared in total of 1134 NBA games (979 started), averaging 11.8 ppg, 8.2 rpg and 1.4 bpg. Divac has his jersey retired by the Sacramento Kings.
