Divac out as Kings’ GM; Dumars to assume role

Vlade Divac has stepped down as general manager of the Sacramento Kings and Joe Dumars has assumed the role of the team’s interim executive vice president of basketball operations, the team announced Friday.

Divac’s exit came a day after the Kings concluded bubble play with a 136-122 win against the Lakers. They finished the season 31-41 and missed the playoffs for the 14th consecutive year — the league’s longest streak.

They haven’t made the postseason since losing to San Antonio in the first round of the 2006 playoffs.
