At last May's press conference in New York, Mikhail Prokhorov promised to address the issue of cutbacks in the Nets coaching, scouting and other basketball operations under Bruce Ratner. 

With six assistant coaches--including three who have sat in the big chair on the bench, he fulfilled one promise last week.  Now, the team has reorganized its scouting department, retaining three scouts; adding two new ones; moving Roy Rogers from the bench to the advance scouting job and signing a new international scout, a teammate of Drazen Petrovic.  Gregg Polinsky, who is generally credited with the Nets recent draft success, remains director of player personnel. 

As previously reported, one of the new scouts is Bob Ferry, former GM of the Washington Bullets.  The other is Frank Zanin, who worked for Billy King in Philadelphia.  The new international scout, Danko Cvjeticanin, won two Olympic silver medals, in 1988 and 1998, with Petrovic and played with him at Cibona in the Euroleague.
