Chris Mullin returns to the NBA in the Sacramento Kings front office

Kelley L Cox-US PRESSWIRE

Former St. John's University basketball star Chris Mullin has joined the Sacramento Kings' front office as an adviser to general manager.

NBA Hall of Famer and St. John's basketball legend Chris Mullin has returned to the NBA, this time as a front office executive for the Sacramento Kings.

Mullin previously served as the executive vice president of basketball operations for the Golden State Warriors from 2004-2009. He was at the helm for the Warriors during their magical run in the 2007 playoffs and his basketball knowledge has been praised by people throughout the league.

Rumors about Mullin joining the Kings front office have swirled since Pete D'Alessandro was brought in as general manager back in June. Mullin gave D'Alessandro his first shot in the NBA when he hired him during his tenure with the Warriors. Obviously, there is a history between these two that could prove to be a great addition for the Kings franchise.

It is no secret that Sacramento has been a bottom shelf team in the NBA for the past 7 seasons; they have gone 187-371 (.335) over that span. However, with new ownership, a commitment to Sacramento, and new front office personnel like Mullin, the Kings aim toward their first winning season since 2005-2006.

Mullin is arguably the greatest player in St. John's basketball history. He was a 3x Big East Player of the Year and took home the John R. Wooden Award for his standout performance in the 1985 season. He was drafted 7th overall by the Warriors in 1985 NBA Draft.
