Bobby Marks a candidate for Pelicans job?

Brooklyn Nets

Zach Lowe, in an article on front offices in "chaos," reports that if the Pelicans dump Dell Demps as GM, the Nets long time assistant GM, Bobby Marks, could be a serious candidate for the job.

Two names to watch if the Pellies eventually part ways with Demps: Joe Dumars and Bobby Marks, the Nets’ assistant GM. Dumars is from Louisiana and tight with higher-ups from the New Orleans Saints, a relationship that dates to well before any real possibility Tom Benson would ever own an NBA team. Marks is well respected and could become a candidate for the New Orleans job.

Lowe doesn't detail where the Pelicans are in the process of reviewing their front office situation, but writes, " neither has had any direct conversations about the job or lobbied for it at all with Demps still on board." That leaves open the possibility that there have already been indirect conversations.

Marks is indeed well-respected in the NBA, having worked for the Nets his entire adult life, starting as an intern and working his way up to assistant GM under Rod Thorn and staying under Billy King. His contract with the Nets was renewed last year.

Indeed, it was Marks and Celtics assistant Mike Zarren who began the discussions that led to the Boston trade last June. He is also one of the league's most noted capologists, committing the CBA to memory.
