During his run with the Kings he averaged 11.4 ppg and 7.8 rpg. He is expected to advise the coaching staff as well as oversee player development programs in Europe.
“With an unparalleled philanthropic track record that spans the globe, Vlade Divac is the epitome of our NBA 3.0 philosophy,” Kings owner Vivek Ranadivé said. “He has a unique perspective and global stature that will only further elevate our organization around the world.”
