The Washington Wizards canned Ernie Grunfeld over a month ago. They’ve yet to hire a replacement.
Danny Ferry, a former Spurs, Cavaliers and Hawks executive, interviewed for the position twice — as did Troy Weaver, the Thunder’s vice president of basketball operations. Tommy Sheppard, who was considered Grunfeld’s right-hand man in Washington for the last 16 years, interviewed for the gig, too. Gersson Rosas was in consideration for the job, but was quickly scooped up by the Timberwolves.
Days have come and went, but the Wizards — presumably not wowed by any of the candidates, given the time that’s lapsed since the firing — continue to operate without a head executive.
