Lakers in discussions with D-Fenders’ Glenn Carraro to become assistant GM

Since Mitch Kupchak’s longtime assistant Ronnie Lester was let go by the team last off-season, Kupchak has had more on his plate. That could be about to change.

According to ESPN, the Lakers are currently in talks with Glenn Carraro, who currently works as the general manager for their D-League affiliate team, the Los Angeles D-Fenders:

After parting ways with several longtime employees last summer because of the NBA lockout, the Los Angeles Lakers are continuing to restock their cupboard with new staff.

The Lakers are in discussions to promote Glenn Carraro from general manager of the Los Angeles D-Fenders, the Lakers’ D-League affiliate, to assistant general manager for the Lakers, according to multiple sources.

The D-Fenders are coming off a great season, losing in the Finals but finishing with a league-record 38 wins for the season. Kupchak credits Carraro is one of the main pieces in getting the D-League team to an elite level, along with coach Eric Musselman and team president Joey Buss.

According to the ESPN article, Carraro joined the Lakers’ organization in 2000 after spending five seasons as manager of basketball operations with the New York Knicks.
