Wojnarowski: Sacramento Kings Trying to Hire Kentucky's John Calipari

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, the Sacramento Kings are gauging John Calipari's interest in running their front office and coaching the team.

Here's an excerpt from the article:

Calipari has been communicating with owner Vivek Ranadive and other members of the Kings' ownership group in recent weeks, league sources said. Calipari has listened to scenarios with which the Kings could offer him complete control of the franchise's fledgling basketball operations to go along with coaching, league sources said.

No formal offer has been made to Calipari, and Kings ownership understands that it will take a multiyear financial package of $10 million-plus annually to get Calipari to seriously consider leaving Kentucky, sources said.

In recent weeks, Sacramento ownership's intrigue with Calipari has only grown with the dissolution of the relationship between All-Star center DeMarcus Cousins and coach George Karl, sources said.
