Vivek Ranadive has been in talks with Larry Bird about a role in the front office with the Sacramento Kings.

Peter Vecsey reported that Bird could be asking for $5 million per season and possibly a partial ownership stake in the Kings. But Vecsey also reported that Ranadive met with Bird on Wednesday, which the Bee has learned is not true.

The Kings have also been targeting Chris Wallace, Chris Mullin, Travis Schlenk and Mike Dunleavy to replace Geoff Petrie.
