Adrian Wojnarowski reports that "Danny Ferry and Billy King have emerged as finalists for president's job with Nets and both interviewing with team Tuesday." Both Ferry and King will be meeting with Mikhail Prokhorov, who is in New York after flying from the Board of Governors meetings in Las Vegas.
This is the first time that Ferry's name has been associated with the Nets' front office opening, though he has interviewed for the Portland job. He was the general manager in Cleveland for five seasons before being resigning in June. He put together the Cavs team that went to the Finals in 2007 and the ones that finished with the league's best record each of the last two seasons. Before moving to Cleveland, he spent two seasons in the Spurs' front office.
No decision is expected Tuesday and there is no deadline for one, a Nets insider said.
