Kenny Smith has been in discussions with Vivek Ranadive about a front office position with the Sacramento Kings.

"We've been talking; we've been talking," Smith said. "That's all I'm going to say."

Smith is a longtime commentator with TNT and former player with the Kings and Houston Rockets. Smith has long been known to covet a general manager position.

"I've been winning my whole life," Smith said. "I've been blessed to be a winner. So whatever happens, whatever I do, I'm going to win an Emmy next year or I'm going to try to win an NBA championship or I'm going to try to win in cards. I'm a winner. I'm a winner. I've been blessed in my whole life, so I think I have a clear vision."
