The Sacramento Kings have had a rough go of it in the NBA draft. They struck gold on DeMarcus Cousins while Ben McLemore and Ray McCallum both seem to be solid picks. The jury is out on Nik Stauskas, and guys like Isaiah Thomas, Tyreke Evans, and Hassan Whiteside aren’t even on the team anymore. […]

There have been plenty of field managers in the history of baseball that have moved from the dugout to the executive suite and become a part of various front offices.
