The Nets examined their finalists and picked a winner.

Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports:

It’d be surprising if Marks rejects the offer after getting this far in the process. The Nets are a mess, short on talent and draft picks. But Mark surely knew that – and likely other parameters of the job – when he interviewed.

Timing is of the essence with the trade deadline 3 p.m. Thursday. This could be finished soon.

Marks has quickly risen through the Spurs organization since retiring as a player, serving time both in the front office and on the coaching staff. He should have the perspective to succeed in this position, though there’s always risk with a first-time general manager.

And of course, there’s an added challenge in working for Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov.
