Brooklyn Nets assistant general manager Bobby Marks has left the team after 20 years, according to a letter he published on his personal Twitter account.
In the letter, Marks thanks Rod Thorn, John Calipari, Jason Kidd, and current general manager Billy King, among others. He first joined the Nets organization in 1995 as an intern, turning it into a full-time job in 1996.
Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports tweets that the Nets are in the midst of staff cuts, and Marks is the first victim:
It's believed Brooklyn ownership is now determined to cut costs across board and staff cuts are underway. Marks is well-respected in league.
