The Sacramento Kings have reached an agreement in principle with Pete D'Alessandro for their vacant general manager position, according to Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski.

D'Alessandro's departure from Denver is another blow to the Nuggets' senior leadership. D'Alessandro had been a strong candidate to replace Masai Ujiri as Denver's GM, but ultimately accepted the Sacramento offer that was made within the past 48 hours.

D'Alessandro was thought to be the leading candidate to take over for Masai Ujiri, who left the team for a lucrative offer with the Toronto Raptors. He was given permission to speak with the Kings shortly after team president Josh Kroenke fired George Karl and now Pete is gone too.

The Nuggets promoted D'Alessandro to Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations in November (2012) and now he will be a member of another organization. It's believed that former Philadelphia 76ers GM Tony DiLeo is now the leading candidate to take over front office duties in Denver, along with Kroenke.
