Joe Dumars will be part of the process to find a new general manager for the Sacramento Kings, sources told Vincent Goodwill of Yahoo! Sports.

Vlade Divacs stepped down from the role earlier on Friday, with Dumars gaining influence within the organization.

Vivek Ranadive reportedly wanted Dumars to work alongside Divacs in shaping the roster, to which Divacs refused.

Dumars could take the entirety of next season to evaluate potential candidates before providing his input.
