    Philadelphia looked everywhere outside the organization for a replacement for Rod Thorn as team president and GM. They wanted Danny Ferry but he went to Atlanta.

    No pressure Orlando, no need to rush. Not like you have any big decisions ahead.

    Allen Iverson Press Conference

    Remember how Ed Stefanski was going to be the next Raptors GM, essentially working under Bryan Colangelo in what would largely be an assistant role since Colangelo is the guy who runs the show? And how it was a done deal and all that? Yeah, not so much. Yahoo! Sports reports that the deal has…

    At some point, the Portland Trail Blazers are going to need a general manager. And if that time is sooner rather than later, well, they are in trouble. More than four months after the Trail Blazers started their search for a new general manager after firing Rich Cho, after interviews with at least four candidates,…

  9. The Hornets may not have been entirely truthful in their dismissal of Luther Head

    Sep 6, 2010, 5:45 PM EDT

    Luther Head agreed with the New Orleans Hornets on the terms of a new two-year, $2.5 million contract, but one GM later, he was left out in the cold. The Hornets claimed that Head failed his physical due to a bum ankle, and the Hornets used that claim to sever ties with Head. In the…

    Jul 15, 2010, 6:24 PM EDT

    There is a buzz around New Orleans Hornets games at the Summer League in Las Vegas suddenly.

The first guy to get a shot seems to be just-fired Kevin Pritchard…

  11. Hornets withdraw offer to Luther Head

    Jul 15, 2010, 8:40 AM EDT

    New Orleans had made a two-year offer to point guard Luther Head to be Chris Paul’s backup. Make that, former general manager Jeff Bower did. He’s out now.

    Jul 14, 2010, 1:47 PM EDT

  13. Jeff Bower out as general manager of Hornets

    Jul 13, 2010, 6:34 PM EDT

    Apr 20, 2010, 2:18 PM EDT
