Kings Notes: Pressley tackles new job

Harold Pressley walked into the team's practice facility early Friday evening, a three-piece suit in his right hand and a smile across his face.

The former King was named the team's director of player development earlier in the day, a role for which Pressley believes he is the perfect fit. Add the official title and the fancy suit, and the Kings filled the void of being the only team in the league to not have such a representative.

Pressley said his role will vary, from mentoring players in the professional and personal realm to handling some matters of community involvement. He also will be a liaison to the league. According to NBA spokeswoman Maureen Coyle, the league started the player development program six years ago.

Kings spokesman Troy Hanson said the duties had been handled by numerous people within the organization in years past, although there was no formalizing of the position.

"It's just wonderful," said Pressley, who played with the Kings from 1986 to 1990 and more recently served as a television analyst.

"It's phenomenal to be back with the organization and doing something that I absolutely love doing. Being a mentor, in communication with the team, the league and the players is very exciting. To be around the guys and back in the mix is just a thrill."

Pressley is still learning his own role, and he said he'll travel to New York next week to meet with league officials for more formal training. He will travel with the team often, but not for all the road games.

"There's so much to learn," he said. "It's going to take a while to get adjusted to it. The league itself is still trying to develop the position."

Fan feedback -- Before the Kings faced the Clippers, team co-owners Joe and Gavin Maloof addressed some 400 season-ticket holders under a question-and-answer format at the team's practice facility.

Among the fans, Judy Mangrum asked a question regarding Eric Musselman. The Kings coach, who was ordered to serve 48 hours of community service for his driving-under-the-influence conviction in October, instead served two days of home detention after citing health concerns.

While the nature of his problem was not disclosed and Musselman would not comment at the time, Joe Maloof said he had no more answers than anyone else.

"I have the same questions you have," Joe Maloof said. "I haven't spoken to him about it. If he needed to do the community service, then he should have. I don't know why he didn't, but he should have."


When Gavin Maloof was asked about the team's future in Sacramento and the status of an arena plan, he said NBA Commissioner David Stern -- who assumed control of the negotiations and planning -- had given a timeline of sorts.

Gavin Maloof said they expect to have a plan for the arena by the beginning of next season and added they are confident a deal will be accomplished.

"We'd be fools to leave this market," Gavin Maloof said. "I don't want to leave."

you should be the one too good to have a conversation with him. If i were you, I would've asked that douche bag if he had already packed his bags for the offseason.
