Hall of Fame Guard Joe Dumars will once again play a role in shaping the NBA as he joins the front office of the Sacramento Kings. Dumars has already proven himself worthy as both a player and executive. He played the entirety of his 14-year NBA career with Detroit, winning two championships. He then went on to join the Piston’s front office where he was promptly voted Executive of the Year for the 2002-03 season. Most recently, he served as President of the Basketball Division for Independent Sports and Entertainment Agency (ISE) where he spent less than two years. ISE has been deeply engaged in their basketball department, representing notable clients like Demarcus Cousins, Penny Hardaway, and Alonzo Trier. Seeking a return to the other side of the ball, Dumars will now join the Sacramento Kings as they retool their leadership structure.
He will report directly to General Manager Vlade Divac. “I’ve known Vlade for decades, and I’m thrilled to work with him and the Sacramento Kings at such an exciting time for the franchise,” said Dumars. This excitement stems from a recent infusion of young talent with players like De’Aaron Fox and Marvin Bagley III, as well as a new commanding voice in the locker room in Luke Walton. Divac referred to Joe as a “legend in our sport.” The Sacramento Kings continue to impress with their progression. This move will only expedite that process as a great basketball mind has joined the fight.
