Vlade Divac has vowed to resign as general manager of the Kings if the team is not better in two years than it is now.
In an interview with the Sacramento Bee centered around his decision to trade star forward DeMarcus Cousins, Divac said, “I totally understand why some fans would be upset. They supported DeMarcus, and I like DeMarcus a lot. But I believe we are going to be in a better position in two years. I want to hear again from these same people in two years. If I’m right, great. If I’m wrong, I’ll step down. But if I go down, I’m going down my way.”
