SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — The Sacramento Kings have agreed to a multi-year contract extension with general manager Monte McNair.

McNair has overhauled the Kings since taking charge ahead of the 2020-21 season and has the team in position to end a record 16-year playoff drought. Owner Vivek Ranadivé said the team had also extended the contract of assistant general manager Wes Wilcox.

“Monte is an integral part of this organization, and I’m delighted to announce his extension,” Ranadivé said. “Since joining the Kings, Monte and Wes have proven to be thoughtful and strategic decision-makers who have shown their ability to execute a long-term vision for the team. The work continues and I have confidence in this front office to continue to drive our efforts forward.

The Kings (27-19) currently lead the Pacific Division and sit in third place in the Western Conference. Sacramento hasn’t had a winning record or a playoff berth since the 2005-06 season in coach Rick Adelman’s final year.

McNair has taken several key steps since taking office, including granting an extension to De’Aaron Fox, trading two-time All-Star Domantas Sabonis and Kevin Huerter, signing players like Davion Mitchell and Keegan Murray, and hiring Mike Brown as a coach before this season.

Sacramento is off to its best start since the 2004-05 season. The Kings rank first in the NBA with 120.3 points per game and third in field goal percentage at 49.5%.
