Sources: Mott to leave Hornets
LAS VEGAS - The Hornets are expected to announce on Monday that team president Paul Mott will no longer be with the team, multiple league sources said Sunday. As of late Sunday night, it was still unclear whether Mott was fired or resigned, and the reason behind the move was also unclear. Hornets owner George Shinn was unavailable for comment. General manager Jeff Bower, who is with the team during this week's summer league in Las Vegas, also couldn't be reached for comment. Mott's tenure as team president was short-lived. He was hired on April 28, 2005 to oversee the team's day-to-day business operations. He had previously been the NBA's senior director of team marketing and business development, a title he held for almost years. While working for the league, Mott was assigned to eight franchises, including the Hornets, to improve their marketing strategies, ticket sales and public relations. It's unclear who the Hornets have targeted as Mott's replacement or when the team plans on filling his vacancy.
