Nets adding former Turner Sports exec Levy as CEO

Former Turner Sports executive David Levy knows the NBA well.

The Brooklyn Nets are expected to hire former TV executive David Levy as their new CEO under owner Joe Tsai, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

Levy headed Turner Sports and grew close with NBA commission Adam Silver, as Wojnarowski relayed.

Tsai has yet to be approved as owner by the league’s board of governors — though that’s a mere formality and will happen within the next few days. After that, Tsai will add Levy as CEO.

Levy will replace Brett Yormack, who served as CEO under previous majority owner Mikhail Prokhorov. Tsai owned 49 percent until now.

The Nets are going through some exciting changes, obviously, with the free-agent additions of Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant this offseason.
