Scotto: Nets’ scout Matt Riccardi leading candidate to fill big roles

Michael Scotto revealed Thursday that two of the big holes left by recent departures —director of scouting and Long Island Nets GM — could soon be filled by Nets scout Matt Riccardi ... who had recently been pursued by the Memphis Grizzlies.

The Nets have lost four key staffers in recent weeks — Assistant GM Trajan Langdon, Global Scouting Director Gianluca Pascucci, Long Island Nets head coach Will Weaver and Assistant Coach Chris Fleming.

A little more than a week ago, the Nets hired two new assistant coaches: Jeff Peterson from the Hawks and Andy Birdsong from the Spurs.
