Posted Mar 23 2010 8:06PM

SACRAMENTO (AP) -- The co-owners of the Sacramento Kings have new titles in a restructuring of their management team and business operations.

Joe Maloof is now chief executive officer and brother Gavin Maloof the president of Maloof Sports & Entertainment.

The changes came Tuesday when the team also announced the resignation of longtime team president John Thomas, effective April 2, for what was categorized as "personal family reasons." Thomas was president for 10 years and has worked as a major sports executive for more than two decades.

Geoff Petrie will remain president of basketball operations, while attorney and former sports agent Jason Levien becomes senior vice president and assistant general manager.

Matina Kolokotronis was named president of business operations and John Rinehart is senior vice president for business operations.
