Basketball - Connelly new boss at Nuggets

The Denver Nuggets have named Tim Connelly as their new general manager after Masai Ujiri joined the Toronto Raptors last month.


The first task for 36-year-old Connelly, who spent the last three years as the assistant general manager in New Orleans, will be finding a new head coach to replace George Karl, who was sacked at the end of the season.

"We have a lot to do," Connelly said. "The draft (is approaching), then we'll hit free agency.

"I'm hoping collectively as a staff we can keep this progressing to where we all want to be." (; Writing by Jahmal Corner in Los Angeles; Editing by Greg Stutchbury)
