Interviews are expected to begin next week, per the report from Amick and Charania.

Langdon, who is the current general manager of the New Orleans Pelicans, reportedly informed the Kings on Wednesday that he would not be involved in the process:

The search for a new general manager will be spearheaded by Joe Dumars, who is acting as the interim general manager and Vice President of Basketball Operations.

Sacramento will need to find a replacement for the recently departed Vlade Divac, who stepped down from his position last month after five tumultuous seasons.
