Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski reported Monday that longtime Jazz General Manager Kevin O’Connor is moving into a top executive position with Utah and leading the search to hire a new GM.
A high-ranking Jazz source confirmed the report. The source told The Salt Lake Tribune there has recently been "talk in the organization" that O’Connor plans to turn the GM title over to someone else, but nothing has been made official.
Messages left Monday for O’Connor and Jazz president Randy Rigby weren’t immediately returned.
A Jazz spokeswoman was unaware of O’Connor’s reported move.
Wojnarowski reported that Oklahoma City’s Troy Weaver was targeted for the job but will stay with the Thunder. San Antonio’s Dennis Lindsey and Cleveland’s David Griffin have also reportedly drawn interest.
