The Sacramento Kings introduced Shaquille O'Neal as a part owner on Tuesday and everyone in ownership and management made it clear that there will be an open line of communication among all members.

Pete D’Alessandro is also open to hearing O'Neal's take on potential personnel moves.

“I hope to," D'Alessandro said. "I’m a believer, much like Vivek [Ranadive], in that open flow of communication, and if someone has a strength, if someone has a perspective, every perspective is good, especially the perspective of a Hall of Famer like him. So I would hope so, yeah.”

O'Neal said he "will have conversations" with DeMarcus Cousins in hopes of improving the Kings' big man.

"We will let the general manager and the assistant general manager do what they do," O'Neal added.
