“We love it, we like to support and try to find a way we can help,” said Kings general manager Vlade Divac. Divac also referenced center Willie Cauley-Stein, an artist who has designed hats for the Kings and has a clothing line. “We support that kind of stuff,” Divac said. “Obviously we like them to know (basketball) is the priority but everything else, the talents they have, they can explore. Even the Kings Academy, we set that up for those things, so they can learn stuff during their career.”
Storyline: Kings Front Office
The move for Doncic was the perfect way to commemorate how the Mavs acquired Nowitzki 20 years ago in a draft-night deal that was much riskier at the time but made this one more readily acceptable. The Mavericks won that 1998 trade with Milwaukee in lopsided fashion, with Nowitzki — then a little-known German whom Dallas general manager Donnie Nelson said baffled folks back then with that “hockey-sounding name” — now merely padding stats on his illustrious Hall of Fame career. As the youngest to ever win an ACB title, EuroLeague title, EuroLeague MVP and EuroLeague Final Four MVP, Doncic is the most decorated European player to ever get drafted. He won’t hold a grudge against Phoenix Suns coach Igor Kokoskov, who coached the Slovenian national team, or Sacramento Kings general manager Vlade Divac, a Serbian who scouted him several times, for passing on him. But he did joke, “I’m going to text [them] later and say I’m mad.”
