Bower Removes Himself from Consideration for Nets Job

Less than 24 hours after Pistons president Joe Dumars released a statement saying that he wasn't interested in replacing Rod Thorn, Hornets GM Jeff Bower released a statement of his own.

"I appreciate the interest shown by the New Jersey Nets to discuss the opportunity with me to head up their basketball operations," Bower said. "At this time, however, it is not the right fit for the Nets or myself.  I remain focused on improving our Hornets roster on a daily basis."

Adrian Wojnarowski reports that Bower and other candidates are "uneasy working with new Nets coach Avery Johnson, whom sources say is trying to gather front-office power for himself."
