SAN ANTONIO (AP) -The San Antonio Spurs hired Dennis Lindsey of the Houston Rockets on Tuesday as their vice president and assistant general manager.
Lindsey replaces Sam Presti, who earlier this month left to become general manager of the Seattle SuperSonics. The Spurs won their fourth NBA championship in nine seasons last week by sweeping the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Lindsey spent the past 11 seasons with the Rockets, the last five as vice president of basketball operations and player personnel. He also served as Houston's director of player personnel, director of player development and personnel video coordinator-scout.
``I am thrilled to have Dennis Lindsey joining our program,'' Spurs general manger R.C. Buford said in a statement. ``Dennis brings a wealth of knowledge to our staff and we are all very excited about his future with the Spurs.''
