The Utah Jazz have promoted Dennis Lindsey to executive vice president of basketball operations and Justin Zanik to general manager.
“We are excited for these promotions as they further enable Dennis to provide executive leadership and overall strategic vision for Jazz basketball operations and give Justin the opportunity for greater impact on our organization. As one of the brightest young executives in the league, Justin will be responsible for the day-to-day operations. Their leadership allows us to work collectively toward our championship goals,” said Steve Starks, president of the Utah Jazz.
“Dennis has put together a team and staff that we are very proud of and who represent our values,” said Gail Miller, owner of the Utah Jazz. “We believe in the importance of continuity and have been fortunate to have Dennis, Justin and their families in our organization.”
“We have great respect for the efforts of Dennis and Justin and how they represent our organization,” said Greg Miller, Jazz member of the NBA Board of Governors. “Their expertise, work ethic and commitment to winning is reflective of who we are as a team and an organization.”
Lindsey has served as general manager of the Jazz over the past seven seasons.
Zanik is completing his fifth season as Utah's assistant general manager. He began in this role in 2013, working directly for Lindsey in pro personnel. Zanik served as assistant general manager for the Milwaukee Bucks in 2016-17 before returning to Utah.
