Calvin Booth Interviews For Kings’ Front Office Job

SEPTEMBER 13: Booth has interviewed for the Kings’ front office job after all, according to Marc J. Spears of The Undefeated (Twitter link). Anderson tweets that it’s unclear how serious Booth’s interest in the job is, but says it’s a positive sign for Sacramento that he met with the club.


SEPTEMBER 12: Nuggets general manager Calvin Booth will become the third candidate to withdraw from the Kings’ search for a new head of basketball operations, a source tells Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee.

News broke earlier today that Heat assistant GM Adam Simon has pulled his name out of contention, and Pelicans GM Trajan Langdon informed the Kings on Wednesday that he no longer wants to be considered.

Those decisions leave Sacramento with just three announced candidates to replace Vlade Divac, who resigned in August. They are Timberwolves executive vice president Sachin Gupta, Rockets assistant GM Monte McNair and former Hawks GM Wes Wilcox. Interviews are set to get underway in the coming days.

The 44-year-old Booth was just promoted to the GM role in Denver in July. He is in his third season with the organization, previously serving as assistant GM. Anderson notes that he played a significant role in the Nuggets’ decisions to draft Monte Morris, Michael Porter Jr., Bol Bol and Vlatko Cancar.

    Did he apply for Kings job?

    Why did Kings make it public?

    How does this work?

      I too withdraw my candidacy for the Kings GM position, effective just after Booth, Langdon and Simon. Before that I just wasn’t paying attention to the opening.

        I am adding my name to the list. I don’t know much about running basketball operations, but I hear the pay is good.

        • Chucktoad1

          I’ll add my name as well, I’ve never been a GM except in 2k. I’m bound to upgrade over my predecessor though!

    There’s something wrong with a candidate who would seek this job. Only a desperate fool would work for Vivek.

    Contract and money are the most important

    Let’s say 76ers offer me 40 million contract with Championship expectation
    And Bulls offer me 5 million with lower expectation
    I will pick 76ers job

    • Sillivan

      Let’s say Booth current salary is 4 years 6 million
      Kings offer 4 years 10 million
      I pick Kings job

      • Moreilly8 2

        In your reasoning the candidate only thinks of a big payday. One with some sagacity would look at the wreckage that Vivek has wrought and think to protect his career.

    Contrary to what all of the Houston-haters think Daryl Morey won’t be available to fill this position, or any GM position in the NBA, regardless of whose favorite team it is.

      Nobody said anything about Morey. Just like nobody thought your backcourt pairing would do crap in the playoffs. They got lucky to beat the team they traded Paul and all those picks to. Furthermore why would a “Houston Hater” be so obsessed with getting Mr. Regular Season Morey on their team? Haven’t you made enough ridiculous claims for one season???

    Given that no one even wants to apply, I’m sure the Kings had to pay Calvin Booth in order to publicly say he was interviewed. Pretty sad.

  6. Patches O'Houlihan

    Nobody wants to work with Vivek, what the Kings need to do to become respectable around the league is something Vivek will not allow as he meddles around to much.

    Here’s an available, experienced candidate !!
