Denver's Pete D'Alessandro is newest name Kings are looking at for GM

The Kings search for a new head of basketball operations continues to expand with the team asking permission to speak with Denver vice president of basketball operations Pete D'Alessandro.

D'Alessandro worked closely with former Denver general manager Masai Ujiri, who left the Nuggets for a more lucrative deal with the Toronto.

D'Alessandro could also replace Ujiri unless another team makes an offer the Nuggets do not match, as the Raptors did with Ujiri.

The Kings introduced new head coach Michael Malone on Monday but it appears they will go into next week looking for a new general manager.

Yahoo! Sports reports Ohio State assistant coach Chris Jent has been offered a three-year deal to become Malone's lead assistant.

Malone and Jent worked together in Cleveland.

Another name to watch as a possible assistant is Roy Rogers, who was on Detroit's staff last season. He's being sought after by several teams after the job he did with the young bigs in Detroit under Lawrence Frank.

Rogers was credited with playing a big role in developing Detroit rookie big man Andre Drummond. Rogers would obviously take on the task of working with DeMarcus Cousins.

Like Cousins, Rogers is an Alabama native.

Malone's father, Brendan, is the only name confirmed that will be on the staff.
