The Kings have yet to formally announce their new power structure, but sources say that Divac has supplanted both general manager Pete D'Alessandro and former Kings adviser Chris Mullin -- who just jumped to the college game as the new coach at alma mater St. John's -- as Sacramento's lead basketball decision-maker. The future of D'Alessandro in Sacramento, especially after the departure of his closest ally in the organization in Mullin, is unclear. Sources say, however, that the Kings have already launched a search to add another front-line basketball executive to work alongside Divac whether D'Alessandro stays or departs. ESPN.com

In a meeting Monday with The Sacramento Bee editorial board, he expounded on his vision for NBA 3.0 – and even for “Civilization 3.0,” the title of his forthcoming book. Ranadive, who made his fortune in Silicon Valley, said the new arena being built downtown will be the most technologically advanced ever. Fans who opt in will be “recognized” by the arena, directed to their seats and the shortest concession line and presented with special offers and information. Likewise, he envisions the surrounding mixed-use development as the “smartest block on the planet” – not just a collection of chain stores, but a gathering place for Sacramento that will be a model for what a 21st century city can be. He sees the controversial Jeff Koons sculpture, which he embraces, as only one piece in a public art collection that stretches across downtown. Sacramento Bee
