Hornets' GM Bower stays in New Orleans
New Orleans Hornets general manager Jeff Bower has pulled himself from consideration for the opening at general manager for the New Jersey Nets.
Bower said he appreciated the opportunity, but he does not feel that it was the right fit for New Jersey or himself.
The Nets recently hired New Orleans native Avery Johnson as head coach. Bower and the Hornets passed on Johnson before selecting Monty Williams as their head coach earlier this summer.
