EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -The New Jersey Nets have a new general manager.
Kiki Vandeweghe (VAN-duh-way) was promoted to the position Thursday, less than six months after being hired as a special assistant to team president Rod Thorn.
Vandeweghe replaces Ed Stefanski, who left in midseason to become the GM of the Philadelphia 76ers.
The general manager's job is the second for Vandeweghe. He held the same job with the Denver Nuggets from August 2001 until the end of the 2005-06 season.
Neither Vandeweghe nor the Nets disclosed terms of his new contract.
Vandeweghe's immediate task is to get the Nets back on track after missing the playoffs for the first time in seven seasons.
