NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A person familiar with the hiring says Dell Demps has agreed to become the New Orleans Hornets’ next general manager.

The person, who spoke to The Associated Press late Tuesday night on condition of anonymity because the hiring had not been formally announced, says the move is expected to become official on Wednesday.

Demps has been in the San Antonio Spurs’ front office the past five years, most recently as vice president of basketball operations under general manager R.C Buford.

Demps also played parts of three seasons in the NBA, including 1995-96 with San Antonio when new Hornets coach Monty Williams also was with the Spurs.

The 40-year-old Demps will replace Jeff Bower, who stepped down last week.
