Casspi confirmed on Friday that he is interested in being a part of the franchise. "We'll see, they're building a team and hopefully I'll be a part of it. I want to be a part of it because I love soccer and I love the city of Sacramento, I think it's going to be great. I'm a big fan, and I enjoyed the game two weeks ago when I was there. I wish I could go tomorrow, but we have stuff to get done here first - I'll follow it," Casspi said. Sactown Royalty

The Kings are leaving open the possibility that director of player personnel Shareef Abdur-Rahim will be with the team this season. League sources told The Bee this week Abdur-Rahim, the only executive left from the Maloofs’ ownership group, would not return, but other sources say he can return if he desires. Abdur-Rahim also served as general manager of the Reno Bighorns, the Kings’ NBA Development League affiliate. If Abdur-Rahim doesn’t return, he will be replaced internally. The team also has to hire a new coach for the Bighorns. Joel Abelson recently accepted a job with the New York Knicks. Sacramento Bee

The only basketball executive to survive last year’s purge under the Kings’ new ownership could be out now, too. Shareef Abdur-Rahim is no longer with the Kings, league sources told The Bee on Wednesday. The Kings declined to comment. Abdur-Rahim wasn’t a visible presencewith the rest of the front office during the NBA Summer League, leading some to question if he was still with team. But he was credited with adding many of the players that won the summer-league championship. Abdur-Rahim, a former NBA All-Star forward, was the Kings’ director of player personnel and general manager of the Reno Bighorns, the Kings’ NBA Development League affiliate. Sacramento Bee
