The Sacramento Kings have opened up their general manager search to Chris Mullin, according to sources.

The Kings have already interviewed Chris Wallace, Travis Schlenk and Mike Dunleavy.

League sources say there is hesitation from the Kings' ownership group to hire too many transplants from the Golden State Warriors following the decision to hire Mike Malone as head coach.

Vivek Ranadive is focused on executives who have a track record of success in the NBA's smaller markets.

David Morway, formerly of the Indiana Pacers, has also been in contact with the Kings.

The search remains "very fluid" and is expected to open up, according to a source.

A report from ESPN suggested Wallace would likely be hired.
