Between the end of the NBA regular season and preparing for the draft next month, Sacramento Kings owner Vivek Ranadive took time to play golf with former President Barack Obama.

Ranadive and Obama have developed a relationship since he purchased the Kings in 2013. He accompanied Obama on a trip to India in 2015 to be part of the nation's Republic Day.

"I saw this opportunity to be a part of history," Ranadive wrote in a post for Fortune.com. "As a boy from Mumbai who came to Boston as a teenager with $50 in his pocket, I owe everything to America. To visit the country of my birth with President Obama was a privilege and an honor I simply could not refuse."
