He still carries the title assistant GM, not interim, unlike his counterpart on the coaching side, Tony Brown, but whether that distinction makes a difference is difficult to assess. Mikhail Prokhorov said Monday Frank Zanin is in charge of basketball operations. When someone calls, Zanin will answer, but Prokhorov added that he’ll be available for consultation.
