Walt Perrin Rumors
“We’re not currently talking to anybody right now,” Lindsey said. “But I am spending part of my day in diligence. I do know several candidates. I have worked with them, done deals with them. If we were to do something quick it would probably be based upon experience and familiarity. If we’re looking at some of the younger talent out there, that may be more of a process.” Lindsey said the Jazz could potentially get by without hiring a replacement for Zanik. The team did not have an assistant general manager before Zanik was hired almost three years ago, and Lindsey said he trusts the experience of front-office veterans Walt Perrin, Kevin O’Connor, David Fredman and Richard Smith.
Walt Perrin, Jazz vice president of player personnel, praised Hugh Greenwood’s leadership and court intelligence after the workout Wednesday. “Hugh had a pretty good day,” Perrin said. “He’s a very smart player — good basketball IQ for a point guard. He was helping the other players in our workouts, so it was good to bring him in.”
