In addition to exploratory conversations with Bird and Mullin, the Kings have formally interviewed Dunleavy, Grizzlies GM Chris Wallace and Warriors assistant GM Travis Schlenk for the job, sources said. The search is "very fluid" and is expected to expand beyond the current crop of candidates, one person familiar with the process said. "It's wide open," another league source said. "It's not concrete on those guys." CBSSports.com

Yet while it has been reported that West is pushing for his former Memphis colleague, Grizzlies general manager Chris Wallace, he said the only candidate he's endorsing is Golden State assistant general manager Travis Schlenk. "I think with Travis, I see a lot of people get jobs, but this guy is eminently qualified," West said of Schlenk. "I don't call many times or talk to people on behalf of people – and I get a lot of calls to do it – but I have an unbelievably high regard for him and I think he would be a great choice, whether he's (Ranadive's) choice or not.

Memphis Grizzlies general manager Chris Wallace has taken the early lead in the Sacramento Kings' search for a new head of basketball operations, according to sources close to the process. Sources told ESPN.com that Wallace's interview this week with new Kings owner Vivek Ranadive went well enough that it stretched into a second day. Ranadive, who was a minority owner with the Golden State Warriors before taking the lead in the consortium that outlasted a Seattle group headlined by Chris Hansen and Steve Ballmer to purchase the Kings, has also already interviewed Warriors assistant general manager Travis Schlenk for the position.
