It seems that Denver Nuggets president, Tim Connelly, could soon steer a new franchise.
According to Fred Katz of the Athletic, The Washington Wizards offered their president a job of basketball operations for Connelly. Connelly met with team owner Ted Leonsis in Washington to discuss the opportunity.

Connelly has a history with the Wizard. He began the franchise and was a director of players' players of the year 2000.
Connelly switched up in the ranks with the New Orleans Hornets and the Nuggets and eventually became president of basketball operations in Denver. He played a key role in building the roster which would end the five-year playoff drying of the team in 2019.
Now, Washington hopes that the same can be done for their team. While the Wizards made the shows last year, they finished with a record of 32-50 this season and they were one of the biggest disappointments of the league.
If Connelly is indeed employed, he will shape a rotation shape around a dynamic guard John Wall, who signed a four-year monster contract with the team in 2017. An interesting piece at the Wizards is also in Bradley Beal, and trade rumors associated with the shooting A guard is flying as Washington has had an adverse effect on the regular season.
The reality is that the person taking the job in Washington has a lot of work to do. The Wizards will be hoping that if Connelly comes forward, he can replicate his success.
