Peja Stojakovic on his favorite memories in the building: “I have so many. But the shot Mike Bibby hit off of Chris Webber’s hand off that sealed Game 5 in the (2002) Western Conference Finals was one of the biggest shots for our team.” On being in attendance for the final regular season home game with fellow Kings legends on April 9: “You’re going to see a lot of generations of legends – players from all the way back in 1985 to now. There’s going to be so many different teams and so many different stories. I think it will be great for fans to get a chance to (see) all of those players that night.”
Warren LeGarie pointed out that Bobby Jackson is close to Vlade Divac and Peja Stojakovic, former teammates and two of the top three decision-makers in Sacramento. “It’s way more transparent when you know the cast of characters involved and way more obvious then,” LeGarie said. “Except to the fans who take what they say as gospel.”

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.‎
