The Denver Nuggets official Twitter, along with various news outlets, are reporting that Denver Nuggets executives Mark Warkentien and Rex Chapman will not be returning for next season.
The Denver Nuggets announced today that the contracts of executives Rex Chapman and Mark Warkentien will not be extended for the 2010-11 NBA season. "Mark and Rex have played important roles in our success over the past several seasons," KSE Executive Vice President Paul Andrews said. "However, after meeting with both individually in recent weeks, we decided it would be best for all parties to go their separate ways. We appreciate everything that each has done for the organization and wish them nothing but the very best in the future - http://www.nba.com/nuggets/news/nuggets_frontoffice_20100803.html
What I find interesting is the speculation about who we may replace them with:
Expect Nuggets to take strong look at Raptors exec Masai Ujiri and Wiz exec Tommy Sheppard as next GM. Kroenke loves both former employees. - Marc Spears (http://twitter.com/SpearsNBAYahoo/status/20249487156)
