Seattle SuperSonics General Manager Sam Presti announced today that Troy Weaver has been named Sonics assistant general manager.

Weaver was the Director of Player Personnel for the Utah Jazz in 2007-08. He originally joined the Jazz as head scout and served in that capacity for three seasons before his promotion to Director of Player Personnel.

Prior to joining the Jazz, Weaver spent four seasons as an assistant coach at Syracuse, one season at New Mexico and three seasons as an assistant coach with Pittsburgh. While at Syracuse, the team won the 2003 NCAA National Championship led by Weaver recruit Carmelo Anthony.

“Troy comes from a very successful organization in Utah,” Presti said. “He has a terrific array of personnel and coaching experience that will positively impact what we are trying to build here with the SuperSonics.”

Weaver will serve as assistant general manager alongside current assistant general manager Rich Cho, who is entering his 11th season with the Sonics and his eighth as assistant general manager.
