NEW YORK (AP) -- The NBA has hired former All-Star Kiki Vandeweghe as vice president of basketball operations.
Vandeweghe, also a former general manager with Denver and the Nets, and the Nets' interim coach for a year, will be involved in the development of rules and interpretations, disciplinary matters and other details involved in the operation of NBA games.
He will start April 1 and report to executive vice president of basketball operations Stu Jackson.
Jackson says Wednesday in a statement that Vandeweghe's more than three decades of experience give him "a tremendous amount of insight into our game."
Jackson says, "We're looking forward to drawing upon his expertise on a wide range of matters involving our game."
