Sacramento Kings vice president Vlade Divac made a job offer not only to Peja Stojakovic, but also to an other former teammate, Peja Drobnjak. Drobnjak, who played alongside Peja and Divac in the Serbian national team, was also a member of the Seattle Supersonics, the Clippers and the Hawks in his long professional career which lasted almost 20 years. He retired back in 2011 and according to Eurohoops sources Divac has offered him a key position in the scouting department of the Kings.

Sources said new Kings vice president of basketball operations Vlade Divac has asked his former NBA and international teammate Stojakovic to leave Europe and move back to the United States to assist him in a player personnel role. Stojakovic’s No. 16 jersey was retired by the Kings in December. He attended summer league in Las Vegas with the Kings in a consulting role to Divac earlier this month, but sources say a firm decision on whether the 38-year-old joins them on a permanent basis might not come before September.‎

You are in Sacramento and I know Geoff Petrie is still out here somewhere. Have you talked to him and is he going to be here for your big night? He’s the guy who found you and took the gamble on you when everyone thought he should have taken John Wallace. Have you talked to Geoff? Predraj Stojakovic: Actually we did. He called me this morning. Geoff played a big part in my career. I told him this morning that if it wasn’t for his persistence, I would never have come to the NBA. He was so convincing at that time that I should just believe in myself and that I was worth coming to the NBA. Obviously, he’s the one who believed in me and supported me when I needed him the most in my early career. We are definitely going to see each other, if not tomorrow at the game, for lunch or dinner, because we still have a great relationship. Geoff has been in my corner from day one.
