David Pendergraft Rumors
A key architect of a Western Conference finals team is a front-runner for a job in the Nuggets’ front office. Two NBA sources said the team has interviewed David Griffin, the dynamic-thinking former Phoenix executive, along with three other candidates — the Kings’ Jason Levien, the Hawks’ David Pendergraft and the Raptors’ Masai Ujiri, who previously worked for Denver as an international scout.
Sources spoke Tuesday of four candidates having emerged as expected finalists for at least one Denver front-office hire. They are former Phoenix executive David Griffin, Atlanta assistant general manager David Pendergraft, Washington vice president of basketball administration Tommy Sheppard and Toronto assistant general manager Masai Ujiri.
