“I am incredibly thankful to Monte, Lindsey and Paul for the tremendous opportunity,” Ranadivé said in a statement. “I would also like to thank our loyal fans and everyone at the Kings organization for their support.”
The Kings named Ranadivé as the G League team’s assistant general manager in May 2022. Prior to joining the Stockton Kings’ front office, Ranadivé served on the team’s social responsibility department, which focused on community efforts and outreach.
She moved up to the general manager position in June when the G League affiliate simultaneously named Lindsey Harding as head coach. The two hires were historic, as it marked the first time two women would lead a G League team.
“We are grateful to Anjali and her contributions to the Stockton Kings over the past two seasons,” Sacramento Kings General Manager Monte McNair said in a statement. “Under her leadership the team has excelled on the court and is set for success in the future.”
