With the wake of the firing of Nets’ head coach, Lionel Hollins and Billy King being reassigned to another position, there are now reports that Mikhail Prokorov already found someone that could temporarily replace Billy King.
Reports from by Nets’ reporter Andy Vasquez’ Twitter account states that assistant GM Frank Zanin will be taking over Billy King’s job temporarily and it is not a problem for Nets owner, Mikhail Prokhorov.
Mikhail Prokhorov says assistant GM Frank Zanin is taking calls for the Nets right now. "It is no problem."

For the meantime Prokhorov will be still on the hunt for a new GM and coach as he will be staying more time in the US but there was no rush for a replacement.
Prokhorov says he will spend more time in the U.S. during the coach/GM search process. Says he is in no hurry to fill either position.
