When the Brooklyn Nets fired Lionel Hollins and reassigned Billy King, the team was put in an odd position, left without a general manager and legitimate head coach for the team. After two weeks of searching for King’s successor as GM, Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski reported that the Nets have narrowed down their search to four “serious” candidates for the position.
Two Western Conference executives have moved into prominent consideration with Bryan Colangelo and Danny Ferry for the Brooklyn Nets’ general manager job, league sources told Yahoo Sports.
Denver Nuggets assistant GM Arturas Karnisovas and Houston Rockets executive VP of basketball operations Gersson Rosas have emerged as serious candidates in the process, league sources told Yahoo Sports.
