Scooter Cleans House!

Frank Hughes reports that new Sonics GM Sam "Scooter" Presti has started making changes in the front office:
The Seattle SuperSonics restructured their front office Tuesday, firing director of player personnel David Pendergraft and head scout Steve Rosenberry, three NBA sources confirmed.

It is expected that new general manager Sam Presti will name Scott Perry, Detroit’s director of player personnel, to the same position with the Sonics, replacing Pendergraft, sources say.

Under Pendergraft, the team focused more of its attention on overseas talent, drafting Mouhamed Sene, Yotam Halperin, Johan Petro, Mickael Gelabale, Peter Fehse, Vladimir Radmanovic, Olumide Oyedeji and Josip Sesar since 1999.

Read the rest in the News Tribune.
I guess we won't be drafting Kyrylo Fesenko then, eh?

Speaking of second-rounders we probably shouldn't pick (but probably will anyway), our pal Mike Seely at the Seattle Weekly takes a look at Glen "Big Baby" Davis, because God knows what the Sonics need is a 300-pound small forward with soft hands.
