Bobby Marks Rumors
In February, on deadline day, every detail of the transaction must be completely finalized by 3 p.m. ET. “I’ve never worked on Wall Street, but when you make a deal, it’s an adrenaline rush,” said former Nets assistant GM Bobby Marks, now an analyst with The Vertical. If a flurry of deals strike in the final minutes, the league will place each trade in a queue, logging through every move chronologically. But teams cannot continue to negotiate, even on the edges, once they’ve called in the original parameters. “You have to make sure you have all your ducks in a row,” Marks said.
The search for fresh front office blood has officially begun. CSNCalifornia.com has confirmed that longtime Brooklyn Nets executive turned Yahoo Sports analyst Bobby Marks was in Sacramento on Thursday for a meeting with the Kings brass. If he’s added to the team, Marks would work alongside Divac, assistant GM Mike Bratz and Director of Player Personnel Peja Stojakovic in an undetermined role, giving the team one more piece to their front office puzzle.
