Dennis Lauscha Rumors
“Whether it’s (head of basketball operations) Mickey Loomis or (team president) Dennis Lauscha, we have a very good team in place there alongside Gayle,” Stern said. “Things are in place now. There’s a naming rights deal in place, and the sprucing up of the arena and the ticket sales and the sponsorships. It’s working. And there’s no reason it won’t continue to work.”
Benson could not expand on his plans for the Hornets management structure, because he has not officially taken ownership of the team. But it’s clear that (Dennis) Lauscha and Mickey Loomis, the Saints’ executive vice president and general manager, will have major roles with the Hornets. Loomis will likely oversee basketball operations, with the Hornets’ -general manager reporting to him.
