Jeff Zelevansky

Frank Zanin, who rose from an intern to assistant coach under Billy King in Philadelphia, then followed him to the Nets, has been named an assistant general manager, King has announced. He'll work closely with King and Bobby Marks, who's also an assistant GM. Marks had been recruited by the Kings for a similar job but decided to stay in Brooklyn.

Zanin, whose elevation had been expected, is one of several front office promotions announced just before the Nets took the floor vs. the Miami Heat in the Orlando Summer League. Among the others: Matt Riccardi was promoted to Basketball Operations Manager, Sean Sweeney to Video Operations Manager; Scott Sereday to Statistical Analyst and Brennan Blair to Video Coordinator. All have been working with the team. Sereday had been a statistics consultant for the team, working 40 hours a week. Blair had been a basketball operations intern.

Zanin began his NBA career in 1999 as a video intern with the 76ers, and then was hired as the team’s video coordinator the following season, a position he held till 2003, when he was promoted to advance scout/assistant coach. In 2006, Zanin began a two-year tenure as the team’s pro personnel scout. When King joined the Nets, he brought Zanin with him, first as a scout, then as Director of Player Procurement. Team officials gave him credit for his role in restocking the Nets roster last summer. His brother, T.J., is a scout for the Clippers and USA Basketball.
