Kings' Scott Moak back in play


LAS VEGAS - Kings' public address announcer Scott Moak, who emceed Saturday's press conference to announce the 12-man roster for the men's Olympic team, returned today for another series of events. On Wednesday, he hosts a Q & A with Hall of Famer Bill Russell, then hosts a panel discussion with original Dream Teamers Scottie Pippen, Chris Mullin and Clyde Drexler, along with former Sonics star Gary Payton.

Moak - who has a great voice and doesn't overhype or overpower his audience unlike some of the league's announcers (see Miami Heat) - had an interesting entree to USA Basketball. It seems that when David Stern sent the NBA's marketing team to Sacramento after the Kings' near relocation to Anaheim in the spring of 2011, one of the staffers (Aaron Ryan) became impressed with Moak. When Ryan left to head marketing for USAB, and it turns out, remembered the voice of the Kings.

I'll update when I get times, locations and broadcast information for the events.
