Nets To Interview Pritchard?

David Aldridge of NBA.com reports that Kevin Pritchard, the leading free agent GM candidate, will interview for Rod Thorn's job, but that seems to be news to the Nets.

"I haven’t set up an interview with him," Rod Thorn told Dave D'Alessandro Tuesday evening. "But I may in the future."

Thorn also confirms that his No.2, Bobby Marks, is indeed a candidate, but Thunder GM Sam Presti says there's nothing to him being on the Nets' list. D'Alessandro writes that Avery Johnson is Thorn's partner in the search and that Johnson "could be the de facto GM, eventually, if the guy coming in is beholden to him for his job."

Pritchard, who was fired by one multi-billionaire on draft night, would get a chance to work for an even richer owner if hired. Pritchard is credited with transforming the Trailblazers from "Jailblazers" to one of the NBA's top young teams.  However, he gained a reputation as a difficult personality and Paul Allen unceremoniously dumped him hours before the draft.
