Frank Zanin Rumors
Frank Zanin: I would like to thank the Brooklyn Nets for allowing me to be a part of their organization for the past six years. After speaking with Sean this morning I have decided to step I down from my position of Assistant GM. This will allow Sean to fill out his staff and give me a chance to pursue other opportunities.
Jeff Zillgitt: Nets asst. GM Frank Zanin has been taking calls from teams and compiling trade offers. Let’s see if Nets pull trigger on one before deadline
The Nets conducted interviews from Monday to Wednesday — and in addition to Colangelo, Karnisovas and Marks, that list is believed to have also included Houston Rockets vice president of basketball operations Gersson Rosas, former Atlanta Hawks GM Danny Ferry, Indiana Pacers GM Kevin Pritchard, former Cleveland Cavaliers GM Chris Grant and Brooklyn assistant GM Frank Zanin.
Assistant general manager Frank Zanin — who has fielded calls since Prokhorov reassigned former GM Billy King on Jan. 10 — would handle any player personnel movement until a full-time GM is hired. But multiple sources say the team’s search is ramping up, and is likely to come to a close if not at the end of this week than by the start of next week.
