06:17 PM ET 06.15 | Denver Nuggets exec Pete D'Alessandro agreed to become the GM of the Sacramento Kings on Saturday, giving the franchise a new face after 20 years under Geoff Petrie. The right hand man of Masai Ujiri in Denver prior to his departure for Toronto, D'Alessandro is highly-regarded in basketball circles and gives the Kings someone with a background of success. He was instrumental in building this year's Nuggets team, which earned a No. 3 seed in the West and 2013 NBA Executive of the Year for Ujiri. Under the new ownership led by Vivek Ranadive, the Kings have been slowly rebuilding different parts of the organization, presumably as the initial steps before dealing with the actual roster. Though the Kings have been among the league's worst teams in recent years, guys like DeMarcus Cousins and Tyreke Evans give the young exec pieces to work with.
