Seattle Group Targeting Spurs’ Buford Or Bird For Front Office

7226570, apparently, the new group is looking for new people to run the front office of the Kings (well, Sonics).

Here’s the report from Yahoo! Sports:

The new Seattle NBA ownership group has begun discussing possible candidates to run its franchise and has deliberated whether to target San Antonio Spurs general manager R.C. Buford and former Indiana Pacers president Larry Bird, sources told Yahoo! Sports.

I would think it would be tough to get R.C. Buford out of there, who has been a mainstay of the San Antonio Spurs’ front office since 1994. Along with President/Head Coach Gregg Popovich, they have helped form an incredible scouting department that had helped them find international players such as Manu Ginobili, Tony Parker, and Luis Scola (who was eventually traded to Houston). The Seattle offer would have to be huge for Buford to get him to leave the Spurs and Popovich.

Larry Bird won Executive of the Year last season when he was with the Indiana Pacers but left due to health issues. Apparently, according to Wojnarowski, Bird wanted to return next season or the season after that. He’s currently a free agent as the Pacers have Donnie Walsh and Kevin Pritchard taking care of basketball operations over there. When Bird was with the Pacers, he helped rebuild the team by getting guys like Danny Granger, Paul George, and Roy Hibbert through the draft.

Geoff Petrie will retire at season’s end so the Seattle group is looking to make a splash at the front office. If the Seattle group gets neither Buford or Bird, they’ll look to guys who have strong personnel backgrounds like Boston assistant GM Ryan McDonough (helped draft Rajon Rondo and Al Jefferson) or Oklahoma City’s Troy Weaver (helped draft Russell Westbrook and Serge Ibaka).
