Jazz Name Former Spurs Exec New GM
If Dennis Lindsey was going to be an NBA general manger, the timing had to be right and the culture perfect.
He found that combination with the Utah Jazz, who on Tuesday introduced the former San Antonio Spurs exec as new GM. Longtime Jazz general manager Kevin O’Connor relinquished day-to-day duties with Utah but will continue to oversee basketball operations as an executive vice president.
Jazz CEO Greg Miller did not mince words in outlining his expectations for Lindsey, who spent the past five seasons in San Antonio’s front office and was Utah’s first and only choice for the job.
“I view your arrival here as a tangible step in our march toward a championship,” Miller said.
