Kings Chasing Morway, Bird as New GM?

The Sacramento Kings are interviewing former Indiana Pacers general manager David Morway for their GM position on Friday in the Bay Area, league sources told CBSSports.com.
Morway, who played a prominent role in building the Pacers team that advanced to the Eastern Conference finals against Miami, fits the profile that owner Vivek Ranadive is seeking — an executive who has a proven record of doing more with less in a small market.
The Kings are continuing to pursue former Pacers president Larry Bird, but a person briefed on Bird’s plans told CBSSports.com on Friday that it would be surprising if Bird took the job. If the Kings were able to add a big name — they’ve also spoken with Mike Dunleavy and Hall of Famer Chris Mullin — it would be for the role of team president with the authority to hire a GM. Another possibility would be to hire a top basketball mind to serve in a role similar to Jerry West’s advisory role with Golden State, where Ranadive was a minority owner before becoming the managing owner of the Kings.
