Kevin Pritchard Rumors
Meanwhile, the Lakers are integrating new front-office leadership, and Kevin Pritchard, the Pacers GM and Bird’s top deputy, is working under a contract that expires after the season, sources say. It could be a wild summer. Bird is ready. “We want Paul,” he said. “And we are always going to do what is best for the franchise.”
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.

Candace Buckner: Another highlight: I asked early in interview whose voice does Bird listen to most during process & he mentioned GM Kevin Pritchard. Later, Bird said he takes the advice of the team’s medical staff above all and explained why. “You find out things and we do MRIs and we do different things and somebody says, ‘How in the heck could they ever pass him?’. Because our medical staff says you shouldn’t take him. A lot of that happens and we’ve done that over the years.”
