When Jeanie Buss took a hammer to the team’s basketball operations staff by relieving Jim Buss and Mitch Kupchak from their respective positions in favor of Magic Johnson and Rob Pelinka, there was a lot of talk about guys like Ryan West and Jesse Buss and what role they would take under the new regime. As holdovers who had some name cachet and noted influence, specifically as it related to the draft, this made a lot of sense.
One holdover’s name which did not receive a lot of mention as the team transitioned to the Magic/Pelinka era, however, was Assistant GM Glenn Carraro. Well, maybe there was good reason for that. It seems Carraro is not in the team’s plans for the future.
Lakers assistant GM Glenn Carraro has resigned, league sources tell @TheVertical. Carraro had been with franchise since 2000.
