Who will get the job?
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:
Sources tell @TheAthletic that Pelicans GM Trajan Langdon has informed the Sacramento Kings he will not be involved in their search for a new head of basketball operations.
Langdon, one of the hottest names on the market, is heading into his second season with New Orleans.

This a relatively bad job.
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.
