The Nets general-managing search reportedly had a few frontrunners last week: Bryan Colangelo, Arturas Karnisovas, Sean Marks.
Now, those three have a slightly different label: finalists.
Chris Broussard of ESPN:
This makes it sounds as if the Nets could hire someone Friday – a day after the trade deadline. Ridiculous? Or just ridiculous enough for Brooklyn?
It’s far more important the Nets find the best general manager available rather than have someone before the deadline, but there’s no reason this process should have dragged so long. The Nets fired Billy King more than a month ago, and they probably thought about it for longer before that.
Or maybe not.
With Mikhail Prokhorov in charge, this needn’t be sensible.
Really, it’s a wonder the Nets have such a reasonable list of finalists.
