Utah Jazz: Justin Zanik expected to join team as assistant GM
Player agent Justin Zanik is expected to join the Utah Jazz front office as an assistant general manager, sources confirmed to The Salt Lake Tribune.
Hiring Zanik would represent the latest of a flurry of moves general manager Dennis Lindsey has made since joining the organization last summer.
The hire was first reported by ESPN.com.
Zanik, whose clients included Oklahoma City forward Serge Ibaka, worked for ASM Sports, the agency that represents Jazz guard Alec Burks. Zanik is considered a statistics and salary cap expert, areas the Jazz have looked to bolster under Lindsey.
Zanik's position would be a new one; they did not previously have an assistant GM.
Lindsey declined to comment.
