The Jazz is searching for a general manager, as Kevin O'Connor has been promoted to the top executive position with the franchise.

O'Connor is in charge of the search.

O'Connor has been overseeing the basketball operations for the Jazz for 14 seasons since arriving in 1999.

Troy Weaver had been the top candidate for the job, but he will remain with the Thunder.

David Griffin, currently assistant general manager for the Cavaliers, discussed the position but is no longer under consideration.

Dennis Lindsey, a former GM with the Rockets and currently with the Spurs, is the "strong leader to be hired," according to league sources.
