Wizards name Tommy Sheppard GM, part of front office redo

WASHINGTON (AP) Wizards general manager Tommy Sheppard is losing his interim tag as part of an organizational restructuring that includes hires from outside the NBA.

Changes announced Monday are part of the new leadership team for Monumental Basketball, a fledgling collective composed of the Wizards, Washington Mystics, Capital City Go-Go and Wizards District Gaming. Sheppard, a 25-year veteran of the NBA, had been serving as the Wizards' interim GM after president Ernie Grunfeld was fired late in the regular season, overseeing the team's draft and free agency.

Among the new hires is 43-year-old Sashi Brown, executive vice president of football operations for the NFL's Cleveland Browns for about two years before being fired in December 2017. Brown, who has a law degree from Harvard and also worked for the Jacksonville Jaguars, will serve as chief planning and operations officer for Monumental Basketball.
