Former All-Star guard Jameer Nelson has been promoted to general manager of the Philadelphia 76ers' G League affiliate in Delaware.
Nelson, who spent 14 seasons in the NBA with five teams, has been progressing steadily through the Sixers organization since arriving three years ago. Before this elevation, Nelson had been the Delaware Blue Coats' assistant general manager and a 76ers scout.
Nelson succeeds Prosper Karangwa as the G League team's GM. Karangwa has moved into a more prominent role with the Sixers' front office after winning a G League title last year, sources said.
Nelson has a well-regarded history in the Philadelphia area as a player from nearby Chester who became a first-round NBA draft pick at Saint Joseph's in the city. He was an All-Star in 2009 for the Orlando Magic, the franchise that drafted him 20th overall in 2004 out of the Atlantic 10 school.
