Trent Redden Rumors
The preliminary list of candidates in Sacramento could include San Antonio Spurs vice president of basketball operations Brent Barry; Toronto Raptors general manager Bobby Webster; New York Knicks general manager Scott Perry; Boston Celtics assistant general manager Mike Zarren; Miami Heat assistant general manager Adam Simon; and Los Angeles Clippers assistant general manager Trent Redden.
Adrian Wojnarowski: Sources: After meeting with New Orleans’ top executive David Griffin about a high-ranking front office job, assistant GM Trent Redden will stay with Clippers. Redden has great belief in Griffin, but is still too connected to LAC group and the unfinished business remaining there.
Andrew Greif: From @BA_Turner and me: Clippers assistant GM Trent Redden is staying with the team after being courted by New Orleans for its GM job, multiple sources confirmed. Clippers’ front office has now retained GM Michael Winger and Redden in recent weeks despite interest across league.
Adrian Wojnarowski: Redden staying w/ owner Steve Ballmer/President Lawrence Frank comes after GM Michael Winger turned down a chance to interview for Minnesota’s President of Basketball Operations job. Clippers are operating like a big market, destination franchise — and those are hard to leave.
Scott Kushner: I’m told potential Pelicans front office addition Trent Redden is in New Orleans this week. It doesn’t mean his hire is certain. David Griffin is holding a large-scale meeting with the team’s incumbent staff later this week, which should help sort out who is in/who is out.
