Shareef Abdur-Rahim Rumors
Abdur-Rahim disagreed with D’Alessandro’s decision to draft Nik Stauskas last year and expressed his belief guard Elfrid Payton would be a better fit for the Kings. According to multiple sources, Abdur-Rahim’s disagreement angered D’Alessandro, who then barred Abdur-Rahim from attending the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas, even though assembling the summer-league team was part of Abdur-Rahim’s responsibilities.
Shareef Abdur-Rahim, a former NBA All-Star, has a 12-year-old son named Jabri who already has a very impressive mixtape. Yes, he looks larger than every kid on the court, but between the handle, the reverse layups, the body control, and ability to finish around the basket, you have to assume the Cal Bears – where his father played – will offer him a scholarship tomorrow.
Malone now joins Shareef Abdur-Rahim on the list of ousted employees the Kings hired before D’Alessandro and Chris Mullin — the latter a top adviser who has Ranadivé’s ear. Abdur-Rahim expressed disagreement with D’Alessandro, Mullin, and Mitch Richmond during the draft process, and left the team shortly after an argument on draft night, per several league sources.
