As if things couldn’t get any worse or more chaotic in Denver at the moment, Yahoo!’s Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that Nuggets Vice President Pete D’Alessandro has agreed to become the new general manager of the Sacramento Kings.
D’Alessandro had been rumored to be the front runner to take over for the departed Masai Ujiri but apparently he has decided the Kings job for one reason or another is the better fit.
It becomes just another blow for Denver as they now must widen the search for a new GM again, while also interviewing coaches and preparing for the upcoming NBA draft.
It also continues to make the offseason in Denver look completely disorganized and confusing as it had been reported since the departure of Ujiri that D’Alessandro would become the new Nuggets GM yet no news ever broke of any kind of offer.
The Denver Post has a bit more about D’Alessandro and why his departure is a loss for the Nuggets and also mentions that former 76ers executive Tony Di Leo as a name to watch, though the situation remains very fluid.
