New York, NY (Sports Network) - Chris Granger, executive vice president of team marketing and business operations for the NBA, will be leaving his current post to become the president of the Sacramento Kings.

The announcement was made on Wednesday by NBA deputy commissioner Adam Silver, who said Granger's 14-year NBA executive term will end on Aug. 1, when he takes over responsibilities with the Kings' front office.

"Chris has done an extraordinary job for us, including developing a group of executives that is industry-renowned for assisting teams in growing their businesses," said Silver. "He is known throughout the industry for his innovative approach to sales and marketing, service, and business analytics."

In leading the NBA's TMBO function, Granger assisted NBA, WNBA and NBA Development League teams on all aspects of business operations.

As president, Granger will oversee the operation of the Kings' organization and be in charge of directing the development of a new entertainment and sports complex in downtown Sacramento.

"This opportunity with the Kings is so extraordinary, both for me professionally and for my family, that I determined the time was now to make the move to the team side," said Granger. "I believe in Sacramento. The fans are numerous and passionate, the local business leaders are sophisticated and engaged, and there is an unmatched sense of community that exists throughout the Sacramento region."
