A person familiar with the decision says the Sacramento Kings have hired Denver executive Pete D'Alessandro as their new general manager.
A team official confirmed the hiring Saturday. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because there has not been a formal announcement yet. The move was first reported by Yahoo! Sports.
New owner Vivek Ranadive had already hired Mike Malone as the team's new coach and was looking for a front office man to replace Geoff Petrie, who ran the basketball operations for the Kings since 1994.
D'Alessandro was executive vice president of basketball operations in Denver.
