Wizards granted permission to discuss opening with Tim Connelly

The Wizards have been granted permission to meet with Tim Connelly regarding their opening for a President of Basketball Operations, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. As Wojnarowski notes, it’s unusual for teams to grant this kind of permission to opposing teams, but there are unique circumstances at play with Connelly, the Wizards, and the Nuggets.

The Nuggets’ willingness to grant permission for Washington to talk to its Executive of the Year candidate is rooted in Connelly’s deep ties to the Mid-Atlantic region and some extenuating family considerations, league sources said.
