“It’s my duty to come back and try to help this organization go to the next level,” said Vlade Divac to KCRA Sports Anchor Del Rodgers on Wednesday.

Divac, who was hired as the Vice President of Basketball and Franchise Operations three months ago, has been tabbed by Kings Chairman Vivek Ranadivé as the person who will “pull this all together.”

In his interview with KCRA, Vlade stressed the importance of the working climate he wants to help foster.

“I want to win, so do the fans, so does Vivek and the coach. Everybody feels the same way. We have to create the environment where the players are without pressure.”

Vlade continued on to emphasize another important aspect of team success, which he's experienced from 12 years of playing in the NBA.

"This is sports, they have to have fun. When they have fun, they play their best.”
