McNair most recently served as the Rockets' assistant general manager and has
been with the franchise since 2007. He has worked closely with Rockets general
manager Daryl Morey as the team developed into a perennial playoff contender.

In Sacramento, McNair is expected to be the top voice in the front office,
reporting to the team's owner. The Kings have been searching for a leader
