The Sacramento Kings reportedly won’t keep Joe Dumars as their general manager.

Who will get the job?

Shams Charania and Sam Amick of The Athletic:

The Kings have requested permission to interview the following candidates, sources have told The Athletic: Timberwolves executive vice president Sachin Gupta, Heat assistant general manager Adam Simon, Nuggets GM Calvin Booth, Pelicans GM Trajan Langdon, Rockets assistant GM Monte McNair and former Hawks GM Wes Wilcox.

Will Guillory of The Athletic:

This a relatively bad job.

Kings owner Vivek Ranadive is often difficult. The roster is lacking. Sacramento is not a prime NBA market.

There are only 30 positions leading an NBA front office, and plenty of people would love to have one. But the Kings will have a tough time luring the most-impressive-looking candidates.
