Spurs set to add Layden

The Spurs appear on the verge of adding to their front-office staff.

Scott Layden, the Utah assistant coach and former general manager who the Spurs interviewed early this week, has agreed to become the team’s new assistant general manager. , which has not yet been formally announced.

Layden was the Jazz general manager from 1992-99, helping to orchestrate two NBA finalist appearances in Utah. He also served as the GM in New York from 1999-2003, but enjoyed considerably less success there.

Layden takes over for Dennis Lindsey, who — ironically enough — left last month to take the general manager’s job in Utah, Layden’s soon-to-be-old haunt.

The Spurs still have one front-office position left to fill, the one vacated when former vice president of basketball operations Danny Ferry took the GM position in Atlanta.
