It was just announced that Chris Granger, a top NBA executive, has been named president of the Sacramento Kings. For 14 years Granger has led the NBA’s Team Marketing and Business Operations and as the president of the Kings he will oversee the development and thus the business operations of a brand new arena in downtown Sacramento. Granger is one of the many new additions to the Kings, with new owner Vivek Ranadive being the most notable addition to the front office.

With the Kings making moves in the front office, it proves to both the city and fans alike that the Kings are finally taking the initiative to improve and once again become a top competitor in the NBA.

As they say, one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.
