After his dismissal as Brooklyn Nets general manager, Billy King's reassignment is expected to include advising ownership on its search for King's successor, league sources told Yahoo Sports. The arrangement is unorthodox, especially considering King was pushed out of the job by owner Mikhail Prokhorov. Under King, the Nets have surrendered seven first-round draft picks – including five of their own – and 11 second-rounders to chase short-term success, severely limiting the franchise's options to rebuild over the next few years.
