Chris Mullin is joining the Sacramento Kings' front office according to sources familiar with the team's plans.

Sources say that Mullin has been recruited by the Kings to expand upon his previous senior advisory role in support of new general manager Pete D'Alessandro and majority owner Vivek Ranadive.

D'Alessandro broke into NBA management under Mullin when the Hall of Famer was running the Golden State Warriors' basketball operations from 2004-09 and he has been using Mullin's input on personnel moves since succeeding longtime Kings personnel boss Geoff Petrie in June.
