JVG leaves Kings for new role at AEG Ogden
From Boti's site:
THE Sydney Kings' revamp - exodus? - continues today with key management visionary Jeff Van Groningen leaving the NBL club for an exciting new role at AEG Ogden.Full story
It was Van Groningen who played a key role in the Kings' three-year rebuild which this season saw the club reach the semi finals after eight years in the post-season wilderness.
The club also enjoyed a record attendance of 14,569 for Game 2 of their semi final series against Melbourne United, an NBL record crowd for this season and for Sydney.
But my information is Van Groningen, or JVG as he is better known, was offered a new role with AEG Ogden - the company which took up Kings' ownership in 2016 - and it was, in the immortal words of "The Godfather" author Mario Puzo, an offer "too good to refuse".
