Bobby Marks who's gone from the Nets assistant GM to the insanely popular capologist of Twitter may be interviewed about joining the Sacramento Kings front office, according to several reports. Sportando, the European hoops site, tweeted this out overnight...
Bobby Marks spoke with the Kings at summer league in Las Vegas and is scheduled to interview again with them in Sacramento, per sources— Sportando (@sportando) July 27, 2015
However, Marc Stein says it's not happening...at least now

Marks left the Nets after 20 years this summer. Since then, he set up a Twitter account that's making use of the knowledge he gained as the Nets capologist. He has nearly 30,000 followers.
The Kings front office could use a lift. It doesn't have a general manager, Pete D'Alessandro having left for Denver. It's been riven with disputes. The coach, George Karl and Vlade Divac, the newly minted "vice president of basketball and franchise operations" disagree over whether DeMarcus Cousins should be the team's franchise player going forward. Divac reportedly dumped analytics director Dean Oliver last week.. Divac apparently is not a big fan of analytics. Vivek Ranadive, the Kings owner, is seen as a hands-on owner, perhaps too hands-on.
