With just 10 days until the NBA draft, a couple teams are still seeking a general manager, and will be looking to get their new hire in place in time for the draft and free agency. Last we heard on the Clippers' search, former Nuggets and Nets GM Kiki Vandeweghe was considered the frontrunner. Meanwhile, Orlando has narrowed its search to three candidates, with the Magic considering Dennis Lindsey, Rob Hennigan, and Jeff Bower. Here's the latest on the league's GM hunts, with any new updates added to the top of the page throughout the day:
- Steve Kyler of HoopsWorld tweets that Danny Ferry to the 76ers "looks close" and adds that David Griffin to the Clippers "has legs."
- ESPN.com's Marc Stein reiterates (via Twitter) that Vandeweghe is viewed as the favorite for the Clippers' opening. Stein adds that David Griffin of the Cavs is in the mix, and confirms a Peter Vecsey tweet that indicated Jim Paxson is also being considered.
- The Magic didn't extend an offer to any of their three finalists over the weekend, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports (via Twitter). A decision is expected by mid-week, if not sooner.
