The Kings made it official Friday, announcing the hiring of Mike Bratz as assistant general manager.

Bratz worked with the Kings' new general manager, Pete D'Alessandro, the past three seasons in Denver, where he was director of player personnel last season.

"Adding Mike to the front office provides our organization with a tremendously valuable basketball professional," D'Alessandro said in a statement. "He brings 35 years of NBA experience, serving in nearly every role the game has to offer.

"During our time together in Denver, I came to know Mike as one of the classiest, hardest-working individuals in our business. It gives me great pleasure to welcome him back to Northern California."

Bratz arrived in Sacramento on Thursday and was at Friday's predraft workout.

Bratz played at Stanford before beginning a nine-year career in the NBA. He was a third-round draft pick by the Phoenix Suns in 1977. Bratz played his last season for the Kings in 1985-86, the team's inaugural season in Sacramento. He later served as an assistant coach and was a radio analyst for the team.

More additions - Besides Bratz, the Kings added former NBA player George McCloud to the front office as a scout.

A first-round pick of Indiana in 1989, McCloud played 12 seasons with Indiana, Dallas, the Los Angeles Lakers, Phoenix and Denver.

More workouts - Former UCLA guard Shabazz Muhammad will return for a second predraft workout Saturday.

Muhammad is among six players the Kings will look at Saturday and is considered a candidate to be selected by the team in the first round of Thursday's NBA draft.

Also working out with the team is former Sacramento State guard John Dickson.

Lehigh guard C.J. McCollum is scheduled to work out for the Kings for a second time Monday. He also is being considered for the Kings' first-round selection.
