The Milwaukee Bucks’ GM search has reportedly been narrowed down to two with Interim GM Justin Zanik and Denver's assistant GM Arturas Karnisovas. Via ESPN’s Marc Stein:
Growing sense, per league sources, is that the Bucks choose between incumbent Justin Zanik and Denver's Arturas Karnisovas for their GM post— Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) June 12, 2017
Late last week, Adrian Wojnarowski mentioned that Zanik, Karnisovas, and Atlanta's Wes Wilcox were the finalists. Stein also mentioned it's possible the announcement of a new GM could happen very soon.
According to the latest indications, Milwaukee could name its new lead voice in the front office as early as this week.— Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) June 12, 2017
This announcement will most likely ease the concerns of fans worried that Wilcox could sneak in and become the new GM. Wilcox, who was pushed out of the GM job in Atlanta last month and is otherwise mostly known for racially insensitive comments made last season, seemed to be the least appealing option out of the three. Whoever is chosen between Zanik and Karnisovas will seem to receive approval from the fanbase and look like the most respected candidates for the gig.
We will be sure to update Brew Hoop with any new developments on the GM search as it appears a decision is close to imminent.
