Kings hire NBA exec Granger as team president


Posted Jul 10, 2013 2:38 PM

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) -- NBA executive Chris Granger is leaving the league offices to become the president of the Sacramento Kings.

Granger worked for the NBA the past 14 years. He has most recently led the league's team marketing and business operations, including assisting Sacramento's ticket and sponsorship efforts since the franchise was sold to Vivek Ranadive in May.

NBA Commissioner David Stern said in a statement Wednesday that "the Kings will benefit greatly from Chris' extensive experience in all facets of team business operations as well as his passion for our game - a passion he shares with the Sacramento business community and the great fans of the Kings."

Granger will oversee the Kings' business operations and direct the development of a proposed new arena in downtown Sacramento. He will start Aug. 1.

Amy Brooks, who has been a senior vice president of the NBA's team marketing and business operations, will succeed Granger in running the department.
