PUZZLE PIECES: In Sacramento, Ailene Voisin wrote Kings Managing Partner Vivek Ranadive "is piecing together an impressive basketball operations department." The addition of former Warriors Exec VP/Basketball Operations Chris Mullin as Advisor to the Chair "completes a front office" that also includes Assistant GM Mike Bratz and Shareef Abdur-Raheem as GM for the NBA D-League Reno Bighorns. Mullin is "a gentleman," GM Pete D'Alessandro is "a scholar, and in today's NBA, their skill sets are complementary." D'Alessandro is "an attorney, a well-regarded front-office executive and a former player agent," while Mullin is a "basketball legend who can gain access to any gym in the world and has been itching for another front-office position" (SACRAMENTO BEE, 9/12).
