Bhullar, though, certainly will remain in the Kings' plans even if he is not signed to a rest-of-the-season deal. The 7-foot-5 center spent the bulk of the season playing alongside Stockton in Reno with the Kings' D-League affiliate and is expected to return to Sacramento's NBA Summer League squad in Las Vegas in July, given Kings owner and India activist Vivek Ranadive's fondness for him.

Rudy Gay says he has head coach George Karl's system down "mentally," which is progress from January when he felt "lost" under Tyrone Corbin. But he is still hoping to get some direction on what the front office wants out of him this offseason. Gay, who signed an extension with the Kings a month before Michael Malone was let go, had this to say when asked about his goals for the offseason that begins in less than a week. "It's kind of different. I never really; for the most part I've always been with the organization and I kind of knew what they wanted me to do. But you know, I have to sit down and see what those guys; see what they want from me next year and try to come in as close to that as possible," Gay told Sactown Royalty. Sactown Royalty

Vlade Divac has quietly emerged as the new lead voice of the Sacramento Kings' front office, according to league sources. ‎Sources told ESPN.com ‎that Divac, who was recently hired by the Kings under the seemingly broad title of vice president of basketball and franchise operations, is indeed regarded as the team's top basketball official by owner Vivek Ranadive after months of turbulence in Sacramento. ESPN.com

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
