Today, Kings General Manager Vlade Divac issued the following statement on the passing of former Kings Basketball Operations executive, NBA assistant coach and scout R.J. Adelman:

“I am beyond heartbroken to learn of R.J.’s death and offer my deepest sympathy to Rick, Mary Kay and the entire Adelman family. R.J. was a generous spirit with an outgoing personality who positively impacted everyone who had the privilege of knowing him. I was fortunate to work with R.J. for several years during my playing days in Sacramento and grew to respect him profoundly on many levels. He will be remembered as a loyal son, friend and multi-talented professional who followed his heart into basketball alongside his father after a successful law career. The Kings organization joins the NBA community in sorrow as our thoughts, prayers and support are with the Adelman family at this most difficult time.”
