According to Yahoo! Sports, former San Antonio Spur and Cleveland Cavaliers’ GM, Danny Ferry, will be returning to the Spurs:
The San Antonio Spurs have reached agreement with former Cleveland Cavaliers general manager Danny Ferry to return to the franchise’s front office as an assistant GM, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.
After Spurs vice president of basketball operations Dell Demps left to become GM of the New Orleans Hornets last month, Gregg Popovich and R.C. Buford aggressively recruited Ferry to return to San Antonio.
