Would Bobby Marks move across the country for the same job he has now? It’s a possibility, according to Sam Amick of USA Today.
Amick reports that Denver Nuggets VP of basketball operations Pete D’Allessandro has been given permission to speak with the Sacramento Kings about their open general manager position, and that there is a “strong chance” Marks, currently the Nets’ assistant GM, would join him in Sacramento if hired.
The Kings franchise presents a different challenge from Brooklyn. Sacramento’s roster is much younger and more flexible salary-wise than Brooklyn’s, with multiple players on small, movable contracts and cap space in this offseason. The biggest names in Sacramento are mercurial center DeMarcus Cousins and guard Tyreke Evans, who has struggled with injuries and development since his Rookie of the Year Award-winning season in 2010.
Or maybe Marks just wants to re-unite with former Nets forward Travis Outlaw, who the Nets used their one-time amnesty clause on one season into a five-year, $35 million deal.
Marks, the longest-tenured Nets employee in the basketball operations department, started with the Nets as an intern in 1995 before getting hired full-time in basketball operations in 1996.
