SACRAMENTO, California — A day after Vlade Divac stepped down as Sacramento Kings general manager, Peja Stojakovic resigned as assistant GM on Saturday.

Another former great from the franchise, Stojakovic had worked in front office executive roles since 2015 — the past two as assistant general manager.


Joe Dumars was appointed interim GM on Friday when the Kings announced Divac’s departure after a 14th straight season without a playoff berth. That’s the longest active drought in the NBA and one shy of the record.

The Kings went 39-43 in the 2018-19 season, showing progress under coach Dave Joerger. But the team fired Joerger after the season and replaced him with Luke Walton. Sacramento then went 31-41 this season.
